Now that’s I’m back from FOO Camp, I’m checking my calendar to see what conference events I have coming up. For those of you keeping track (hi mom!), here they are:
- Microsoft PDC: September 13-16 in LA. I haven’t managed to wrangle a chance to speak yet. :)
- Zend/PHP Conference: October 18-21 in Silicon Valley. Speaking about eBay Web services. Final talk TBD.
- ApacheCon US 2005: December 10-14 in San Diego. Speaking on “Consuming Web Services Using PHP 5″.
The ApacheCon talk should be quite cool, as I will be showing off nifty real-world web services examples. For example, sucking del.icio.us RSS bookmarks into a WordPress blog, or mashing up eBay Web services search results with the Google mapping API. Here’s the full abstract:
As we move into the world of Web 2.0, PHP developers must increasing include Web services in their toolkit of skills. This session covers how to implement REST and SOAP clients using the latest PHP 5 extensions, such as ext/soap, SimpleXML, and xsl.
This is not an academic talk discussing theory and specifications. Examples show applications of popular Web services, including del.icio.us, eBay, and Google Maps.
Don’t be left behind. Come to this session and learn how to integrate Web services into your code.
I have most of the code already written in various places, so there’s only the problem of creating the slides. Once I know more about my other talks, I will pimp them here, so stay tuned for all the details.
