If you'll be in Vancouver, BC, in February, check out the Vancouver PHP Conference, where Julian Egelstaff of Freeform Solutions will be giving a presentation called "Intro to XOOPS and Formulize." The conference organizers have done a terrific job of attracting some really high profile speakers, including, to name just a few:
  • Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of PHP
  • Brian Aker, director of architecture for MySQL
  • Derick Rethans, core PHP developer and resident PHP guru at eZ systems, creators of eZ components
  • James Walker, "rockstar Drupal developer" and co-founder of Drupal hosting provider Bryght
  • Ilia Alshanetsky, core PHP developer and security expert, who wrote PHP|Architect's book on PHP security
We are thrilled and honoured to have the opportunity to participate in the conference alongside these luminaries of the PHP community! This is a great opportunity to promote XOOPS in the open source programming community, as a viable alternative to several other systems and frameworks that will be presented at the conference. We hope that members of the XOOPS community in the lower mainland of BC will be able to come out and show their support. When: February 12 and 13, 2007 Where: UBC Robson Square Cost: $150 (Canadian dollars) Website: http://vancouver.php.net Agenda: http://vancouver.php.net/confschedule Speakers: http://vancouver.php.net/confspeaker About Julian's Presentation:
"XOOPS is an open source, PHP-based website platform, that I'll argue is halfway between a CMS and a framework. I'll build a simple XOOPS site and show some of it's key features, and the advantages of being in the middle of the CMS-framework continuum. In addition, I'll demonstrate how our Formulize module for XOOPS gives developers, and regular webmasters, some rapid application development capabilities with minimal coding required."
