Zend PHP Conference 2007

Ah, the smell of Fall is in the air...oh, no...wait...that's the stench of ZendCon approaching. :) Next week, I'll be attending and speaking at the Zend PHP Conference in Burlingame, CA, right near San Francisco. I'll be giving two talks...well, 1.5. First, I'll be debuting my talk "The Grown-Up Company's Guide to Development." This particular talk focuses on increasing the quality of work by way of coding standards, code reviews, using robust development tools, and adopting a framework/toolkit. I'll be presenting it at Atlanta PHP on October 4th, too.

Next up, my colleague Ben Ramsey and I will be co-presenting "Mobilizing & Sharing: How the Zend Framework Builds Community for Nokia MOSH." This particular talk is basically a case study on how Schematic used Zend Framework in building Nokia's new social networking and mobile content sharing site, Nokia MOSH. I'll be covering some basic architectural information on MOSH during the talk as well.

So if you're attending and happen to read my blog, be sure to say "hello!" I'll be around from Sunday evening through Thursday afternoon.
