It's still in its earlier stages of organisation, but if you live in the UK somewhere within commuting distance to London, why not sponsor this?

PHP Conference UK

PHPLondon are planning to hold a conference on 10th February 2006. We are planning to have a number of talks by notable members of the PHP community. The event will appeal to a wide range of individuals including web developers, programmers and open source enthusiasts. This event will also be an ideal opportunity to code, collaborate and engaged in discussions with fellow attendees. Informal evening events are being planned as well. London has excellent transport links both within the UK and Europe.

It's organised by the London PHP Group. If you look at their member list, you'll probably recognise quite a number of PHP notables among them.

Nice... I wonder just who the "notable" speakers will be.

Should try getting an expenses-paid trip down to London with work :)

You'd think that they would at least be able to do a good website!

Not sure what the fuss with the web site design is all about. I think people seem to get web designers and PHP programmers mixed up :)

You don't have to be artistic to be a programmer, but you do have to have a good sense of logic.

Well, there's three speakers announced so far .. a couple of guys who've written books about PHP and design patterns .. and a guy who's written an MVC framework for PHP 5 (I think). I realise the organisers are attempting to get people to come on the basis of improving their work related skills and (possibly) get their employers to pay for the trip, but they sound awfully dry. There's no representation of the fun side of PHP coding*. I hope the situation improves.

* If design patterns are your idea of fun then you need to get out more.
