Magma Sponsors the PHP North East Conference 2014

PHP North East (PHPNE) is a one day event that takes place today in the stylish Tyneside Cinema, a beautiful Grade II listed building. There are 14 enthused speakers talking about the latest libraries, tools and practices instrumental in shaping the future of PHP development.

It is the second year that this conference is running and Magma Digital is proud to be sponsoring the community event this year.  Sponsoring industry related events is part of Magma’s whole-hearted commitment to supporting the web community and promoting best practice within our wider industry. Supporting the conference is vital as it is a not-for-profit event and enables it to be effectively run and affordably attended.

All of the Magma Web Developers and Project Managers are present today as we believe that conferences are vital for professional and personal development. Stuart Grimshaw’s scheduled talk on Anxiety, Depression & Stress in IT is one great example of how presentations are related to the holistic view of a developer and how work, home and development coincide in this busy industry.

The post-conference social at Newcastle’s newest bowling establishment, Lane7, sounds like it will be a lively affair. The venue has pool, karaoke, ping-pong and of course, ten-pin bowling on offer. Magma cannot wait to attend and we look forward to seeing some of you there!

Free attendance at industry related events and socials is just one of the benefits that developers at Magma enjoy. If you are interested in joining our team of developers please take a look at our current job vacancy.
