On September 7th, 2017, I'll be hosting the Pacific Northwest PHP Conference, a non-profit 5013c 3-day developer event focused on PHP and high level developer topics. You can find information here: PNWPHP
This is our 3rd annual event, with the last 2 being very successful. We started off the first event running a Kickstarter fundraiser. We raised over $10,000 to cover the venue costs. Back in 2015, it was a very scary process to wonder if you'll make it out and at least break. Any amount above the costs to run an event is a big deal. (That means money towards a bigger conference the year after). We had a lot of leftover funds after the first year, thanks to our organizer team contacting sponsors and marketing on a daily basis.
Now that we are on our 3rd year, we are going bigger and better. We have the best set of speakers, an amazing venue, and delicious food set to be catered. If you haven't seen our event schedule, you can find it here.
Have you bought your tickets yet? If you're a student, you may be in for a treat. Please email admins (at) seaphp.com using your .edu email address and we may give a free or discounted ticket based on the program you're in at school.
Thanks to the many sponsors for making this event come true: Siteground, Twilio, Oracle, and many more!
