PHPNW09 wouldn’t be possible without the kind support of our sponsors. Everything from the catering (and large bar tab!) to the t-shirts have been taken care of and for this we are massively thankful to the organisations listed below. If you’d like to support this years conference, or even register your interest for next year, please get in touch via conference [at] phpnw.org.uk

Premier Sponsor

Microsoft Logo
Microsoft’s approach to developing innovative products and solutions demonstrates its commitment to supporting the development of the UK economy. At Microsoft, we’re motivated and inspired everyday by how our customers use our software to find creative solutions.

In recent years a number of traits that make open source and development successful are starting to appear in Microsoft products. This means developers and system administrators accustomed to working with one platform or another will find their skills can be applied to both. Microsoft has also worked with the PHP community to greatly improve the performance and stability of PHP on Windows so that now the Windows web platform supports all web workloads.

If you want to find out more about Microsoft’s involvement and the offerings that could be beneficial to you then come talk to us at the conference where we will have some great technology for you to play with.
