We're delighted to announce another PHPBenelux User Group Meeting. This October edition is taking place Wednesday October 27th in Houthalen (Limburg, Belgium). For this edition we're teaming up again with the ever so kind people at Inventis who offer us the venue and Weble who take care of our thirst and hunger.
It's no secret that the previous edition at the Inventis headquarters was a great success. That's why we're happy to have another event in Limburg, backed by two great sponsors Inventis & Weble with an excellent lineup so far.
Speakers & talks
Dennis De Cock (@dennis_dc)
Dennis De Cock is CEO and founder of DeCockICT bvba and is heavily involved in Zend Framework and Drupal projects. He's not a stranger to our community as he has presented ZendX_JQuery at our February meeting in Leuven earlier this year. Today he's speaking about Zend_Pdf and the challenges he faced getting this component working.
Ivo Jansch (@ijansch)
PHP in a mobile ecosystem
"2010 is the year the web became mobile. A significant portion of the mobile web has moved from the browser to the 'apps' domain. The iPhone, iPad and various Android phones have popularized the app concept. Apps are not written in PHP, so are we moving away from PHP? In this session, Ivo takes a look at PHP's role in the mobile web, and why he thinks PHP is a great tool in the App revolution"
"Ivo (@ijansch) is an evangelist of PHP technology in professional and enterprise environments. He is the author of the books 'php|architect's Guide To Enterprise PHP Development' and 'php|architect's Guide to Cloud Computing' and a member of the Zend PHP 5.3 Certification Advisory Board. When he's not writing, tweeting or coaching developers, he can be found coding on a variety of projects such as the ATK business framework, or speaking about PHP related topics at various conferences. After a 10 year career as the CTO of Ibuildings, one of the PHP companies in Europe, Ivo is now the founder of Egeniq, a new mobile apps company."
