The Big Easy

I’m heading down to New Orleans tomorrow for the eBay Developers Conference and eBay Live! The good news is that I’m not on the hook for any talks, so I can sit back and relax.

Well, that’s not completely true. There’s still work to be done. I’m hosting a PHP Round Table, a PHP BOF, and providing some PHP XSL backup for a hands-on lab. Also, I’ll be working the conference listening to developers and gathering feedback.

I’m particularly interested in PHP folks. PayPal developers love PHP and I’m going to try and co-opt them for eBay.

I’ll be blogging the conference over on the O’Reilly Network. Partially because eponymous O’Reilly honcho Tim O’Reilly will be speaking on Wednesday alongside eBay founder Pierre Omydar, and partially because it seems like a fun thing to do.

Now I need to go pack because it’s 11 PM, my plane leaves in 9 hours, and I still need to e-mail back my comments about the index to Upgrading to PHP 5 before I leave.
