PHP is acknowledged as the most widely used programming language on the web, utilised by over 5 million developers and accounting for 40% of existing web applications 1. It is the fourth most popular programming language overall making it an area of huge potential.
The heart and soul of a conference is the community that it serves. PHPNW is run by passionate volunteers, bringing an annual conference that benefits both developers and their companies.
PHPNW12 is a place to come together and talk about PHP. As organisers, we consider each and every one of our attendees, sponsors and speakers as our guest, and we want everyone to feel welcome, respected and safe. Please make it your aim to make all of our guests feel welcome and comfortable, either at the conference itself or any associated social event, any unsuitable behaviour may result in conference access being revoked. PHPNW is a good crowd, and we will endeavour to make sure it stays that way as the event grows.
The PHPNW user group began in 2008 with the desire to:
- Improve PHP skills in the North
- Encourage personal development of Web Developers
- Provide opportunities for innovation and creation
- Create a support network for the developers run by the development community
- Provide opportunities to share experiences and best practice
Currently the group meets up the first Tuesday each month at Rainbar, Deansgate Locks, Manchester.
