Magma Digital Just Loves Getting Stuck In

Well, it’s that time of year again where PHPNW is creating a great deal of buzz among the Web Developer Community as its conference approaches.

For all of you that are asking the question “What is PHPNW?” then let us begin with the basics.
PHPNW is an annual conference held in Manchester which targets; Developers, Programmers, Managers, System Administrators, Enterprise Developers, Entrepreneurs, Designers and Students.

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. It is the fourth most popular programming language overall making it an area of huge potential.

PHP is a fundamental web development language at the core of many established and emerging technologies driving, changing and challenging the future of the technical world. So if you think that PHPNW is something you’d like to know more about then take a look at the conference about page.

PHPNW 2011 will be holding it’s fourth annual conference from 7th October to 9th October at the newly-transformed Ramada Manchester Piccadilly Hotel. The conference is organised by developers for developers and its intention is to be the perfect opportunity for learning, networking and mixing with peers and industry leaders, as well as discovering the latest techniques and innovations in PHP and internet development.

The aim of the conference is to attract a wide range of speakers, some who are from the known International PHP scene and others who are more local talent from within the UK.

The team at Magma Digital has been working hard preparing for the conference doing things such as: booking delegate tickets, preparing the venue, building the website and ordering items for the delegate goodie bags.

So why are we telling you all this? Well, Magma has been instrumental in organising the PHPNW events and conferences since their inception in 2008. The reason we get behind PHPNW is because we strongly believe in supporting the local web community and promoting best practice within our wider industry.

And for all of you that already know about PHPNW 2011 and are attending the conference, we hope to see you there and that you will come and say hello, we’d love to chat.
