On Monday I arrived back in Germany from the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo. Other people already posted detailed round ups 1 2 3 on this great event, so from my side only few words on the actual event: It was damn cool! :) The conference itself was a very well working mixture of business and geek talks, the sessions were chosen really good. As usual I met a whole lot of old friends (like Markus BÃ¶rger, John Coggeshall, Christian Wenz and even Sterling Hughes) and made another lot of new ones. The location was really nice and the events they organized were real fun. So, all in all: My appreciation to Zend for this great event!
Update Oct. 30: I recently added 2 movies Gregor made during our heli trip to my gallery. Really cool! :)
But now, let's come to the more unofficial part: On Friday, after the last keynote, Gregor Streng (from Mayflower) and me moved to a hotel downtown San Francisco, directly at the Union Square, to have 3 more days of enjoying San Francisco itself (since the Conference took place in a town near SFO airport: Burlingame). We had 3 fantastic days in "the City" and did lot's of sight seeing, like flying over SF with a helicopter, touring to Sausalito with a bike, going out for party with Sterling, and much more. Just to make you curious, here just a few of the amazing pictures we took:
All in all it was an amazing trip and I love San Francisco, it's flair, the people and the whole city. I will definitly come back one day... Hopefully this is next year for another Zend/PHP Conference and Expo. Thanks so much for bringing me there!!! :)
I recently received a package from Amazon and really wondered, because my last buy is a longer time ago and I did not miss anything from it... So wonder, I received the Star Trek Next Generation - Movie collection, including all 3 Star Trek movies that play in TNG.
Yesterday I arrived here in San Francisco, together with Gregor Streng from Mayflower, for the Zend/PHP conference and expo. The flight was a bit hard (12 hrs sitting is not what you really want to do) and the jetlag caught me yesterday afternoon during dinner, but overall I'm really happy to be here. :) I already saw parts of Frisco when driving to dinner and the Californian environment ist really nice (although the weather is quiet cloudy). As usual there are lots of wellknown people here and I expect to have lots of fun with all those collegues and friends form the community. Since I missed to by an AC adapter (I was sure to be able to rent one here) I'm currently out of power most time, but I hope to fix that soon, so that I can upload some photos and write some more on the conference.
For those of you who can not attend the Conference here in the US (all you European and mainly German geeks), I can only recommend joining the International PHP Conference in Frankfurt this November (6th to 9th). It's one of the oldest and most established community events and you get the chance to meet all those PHP gurus, who push PHP forward every day, in person. Beside that, you can join my phantastic workshop on how to distribute your applications through the new PEAR Installer version 1.4 and your own PEAR channel server.
So long, have a good time!
I recently uploaded a new version of PDV (phpDocumentor for VIM), which allows you to comfortable generate documentation for your PHP classses, functions, methods and attributes. The new version fixes some issues with the usage of tabs in your code (since I only use spaces, I did not notice these), as well as some smaller bugs. Enjoy! :)
