FrOSCon PHP Track back in time

For thirteen years the PHP track at the Free and Open Source Software Conference (FrOSCon) was organized by the PHP UG of dortmund. Special thanks goes to Kore and Sebastian for their impressive work. Back in 2017 Maximilian and Ute took over the organization.

Seid je her war der PHP Raum ein Treffen der PHP Familie. Man trifft hier die alten und die neuen Hasen. Man redet hier über PHP Internals und über Lösungen, die wir gemeinsam mit der Sprache PHP erarbeiten.

Das Publikum

FrOSCon ist eine Konferenz, die von Geeks für Geeks organisiert wird. Eines der großartigsten Dinge an der FrOSCon ist, dass Sie nicht nur Softwareentwickler treffen werden, sondern auch Hardware-Geeks, Telefon-Geeks, Strick-Geeks, Gaming-Freaks. Bereite dich darauf vor. :)

Da dies der Fall ist, kann man sich eher esoterische und komplexe Themen ausdenken, die man sonst nirgendwo präsentieren würde.

Code Of Conduct

Just like the FrOSCon has its Code of Conduct, a Code of Conduct also applies to the PHP room:

“Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.”
