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.

Ever since the PHP room was a meeting of the PHP family. Here you meet the old and the new bunnies. Here we talk about PHP Internals and about solutions that we develop together with the PHP language.

The audience

FrOSCon is a conference organized by geeks for geeks. One of the awesome things about FrOSCon is, that you will not only meet software developers, but also hardware geeks, telephony geeks, knitting geeks, gaming geeks. Prepare for that. :)

Since this is the case you can come up with rather esoteric and complex topics you would not present elsewhere.

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.”
