Vegas baby! Speaking at ApacheCon 2004

I just heard that I’m going to be speaking at ApacheCon 2004 in Las Vegas on Tuesday, November 16th. I’m going to be giving my “PHP 5 Sucks! PHP 5 Rocks!” talk. If you missed it at OSCON, here’s your second chance.

I will also be hosting an eBay BOF. Place and time TBA. If you’re an eBay developer, want to write applications that talk to our Web services APIs, or just interested in hearing stories about why eBay is cool, be sure to come on by. At our last BOF, we talked about clear plastic raincoats, so this one is bound to be just as interesting, if not more so.

There are quite a few excellent PHP talks this year at ApacheCon: Chris Shiflett’s speaking on PHP Security and co-presenting with Geoff Young on testing PHP applications using Perl. (Honest! It’s a serious talk. In fact, it may be the first PHP talk I expect to learn something from in years.)

Also, Christian Stocker is giving two talks on XML in PHP 5: “XML on Crack” and “XML on Speed.” (Really. I can’t make this stuff up.) Christian’s been a big force behind XML in PHP for years. If you’re at all interested in PHP and XML, you’ll want to listen to his presentations, as you’re bound to learn three or seven new tidbits you can use at home.

And, of course, Andi Gutmans is giving the obligitory “Introduction to PHP 5” presentation. (He seems to come to quite a few more conferences now that he lives in Silicon Valley instead of Israel, doesn’t he?)
