What this site is missing

Posted on in about

So this site has been up officially for just shy of a month. It has, of course, gotten virtually no traffic of note. I've been hit by the Google bot1 and myself several times, and probably a few other minor things. But that's about it. That's ok, though. This site is more for me to have a place to put down thoughts than a traffic generator ;) But I'm going to fuss over it for quite a while, until I'm completely happy about it. So this page will be a sort of placeholder for what needs to be done still (besides writing meaningful articles).

  1. The site shows up on Google if you search for redbeard php world. YAY!

Anyway, on to the summaries for Conference Day 3!

So...even later still. I'm writing this on December 6—16 days after the fact. As such, this will be more brief than the brief summaries I wrote previously (Tutorial day and Day 1).

I went to the following talks on Conference Day 2:

php[world] 2015 - 04. Conference Day 1

Posted on in phpworld, programming


I was going to try to get these done the day of or shortly after. It's now Friday night and I've fallen way behind. Oh well. It's because I was busy at the conference, thanks to the amazing folks at PHP Architect. And it means these will be shorter that I'd like.

So on the official Conference Day 1, I saw two keynotes and went to four talks:
