The Online PHP Conference 2021

A conference on professional software development
and the PHP technology stack
January 18 - 22, 2021

Topics were spot-on, work-relevant, practical and not focused on a hype.

Lots of tidbits of information and discussion.

The talks all were very interesting and very well presented.

The way one speaker was talking and the other two moderators substituting the chat with additional information and useful answers in real-time was impressive to me.

The Online PHP Conference 2021 is a conference on professional software development and the PHP technology stack.

We start the week off with three full-day workshops on Monday: you can learn how to start up a new PHP project and set up modern development tools for it, you can see the group modeling technique Event Storming in action and experience how easily real-life business problems can be modeled, or you can get hands-on with implementing the Command/Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) architecture pattern.

The main conference is a single-track event that takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. It features short and regular-length presentations intermixed with other formats such as Live Coding and discussions.

We end the week with three half-day workshops on Friday: you can see many practical examples on how to get your tests ready for the next major version of PHPUnit, you can learn how to capture requirements through good user stories, or you can implement Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment with GitLab CI.
