Michael Bourque and his team put on an awesome event, using their Boston PHP Meetup organizer skills to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. The Microsoft NERD Center is always a great venue, and the fact that Microsoft provided it for free helped keep the cost of the conference extremely low (only $99!).
Wayfair was also a gold sponsor, which meant that we provided the t-shirts and paid for the Saturday night event (apps + beer at The Meadhall). We ended up sending around 15 engineers to the conference, and everyone got a lot out of it. Most of the speakers have posted their slides, so check out some of the talks that we really enjoyed:
- Introducing PHP 5.4
- Redis for the Everyday Developer
- Caching with Memcached
- Mobile & UX: Inside the Eye of the Perfect Storm
Thanks to Michael, Matt, Heather, and everyone else for organizing the conference. Hopefully I can participate again next year!
