php[tek] 2016 Call for Speakers

The team at php[architect] is excited to annouce that the Call for Speakers is open for php[tek] 2016.

This 11th annual conference that is focused on community is this year moving to a bigger venue in Saint Louis so that we can expand and give our attendees some elbow room! We have a number of other updates that will be announced in the coming months as well.

But right now, we want to hear from you! We want to hear what talk ideas you have. Without our speakers, there would be no conference. We offer a very comprehensive speakers package, including:

  • Airfare coverage (up to $400 domestic, $1000 international)
  • Hotel Room (1 night + 1 per accepted talk)
  • Free ticket to the conference, including Tutorial Day

Don't hesitate! Our Call for Speakers closes on January 16th, 2016. So you only have a few weeks to get those submissions in. We look forward to hearing from you!

PHP 7.0.0 Released

it for the detailed list of new features and backward incompatible changes.

The inconvenience of the release lateness in several time zones is caused by the need to ensure the
compatibility with the latest OpenSSL 1.0.2e release. Thanks for the patience!

It is not just a next major PHP version being released today.
The release being introduced is an outcome of the almost two years development
journey. It is a very special accomplishment of the core team. And, it is a
result of incredible efforts of many active community members.
Indeed, it is not just a final release being brought out today, it is the rise of
a new PHP generation with an enormous potential.

Congratulations everyone to this spectacular day for the PHP world!

Grateful thanks to all the contributors and supporters!
