We are over the moon to be able to share the news that the PHPNW14 Conference has been announced for the 3rd – 5th October at the Manchester Conference Centre. The not-for-profit conference kick-starts on the Friday with an optional Tutorial Day and the Hackathon social will launch the conference weekend for all conference delegates. These are great opportunities for those who have a passion to learn on a more individual level. The conference will once again mark one of the highlights of the technical events calendar in the North West.
The PHPNW user-group and conference was founded in 2008 by Jeremy Coates, our Managing Director, who had a desire to build a support network run by the PHP community in the North West. The user-group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at Joshua Brooks in Manchester, while the conference occurs annually, historically the first weekend of October. PHPNW is the second largest PHP conference in the UK and this will be the seventh year it has been running, with the conference team able to boast six successful sold out events so far!
In addition to attracting a large number of delegates from the North West and the rest of the UK, PHPNW has a strong global reach, attracting many international visitors from approximately 20 countries worldwide. With over 400 delegates in attendance, the conference is an unmissable opportunity to target high-calibre PHP developers and it also represents great exposure for the event sponsors. Magma is proud to play a double role in supporting PHPNW, for we have always sponsored the event, as well as investing substantial amounts of time/effort into helping organise the conference.
Sponsors are already jumping on board for this year’s conference, showing that PHPNW has earned itself an enviable reputation as a must-attend event in the Northern technical conference scene. In 2013 40% of tickets were sold before the schedule had even been released. Tickets are now on sale on the PHPNW14 website and the call for papers has opened too.
