What not to do is often more important than what to do, and learning from the mistakes of others can save you time and a lot of pain. If you're interested in avoiding these kinds of mistakes, or you just enjoy war stories from PHP software development, then be sure to come along.
Our goal was to get people with a diverse spectrum of experience, from working in large and small scale companies, from developer to manager. We'll get them talking about a range of topics, from development, testing, libraries, infrastructure, working in a team, management, job searching, etc... So there will be something for everyone.
Conor Smith: Senior Developer for the Journal. Conor is an experienced developer, with a passion for design, testing, quality and scalability. His experience with infrastructure (particularly AWS) and development at all levels is sure to give us some good tales.
Marco Troisi: Senior Software Engineer at Bluefin Payment Systems, Marco previously gave a talk on microservices and system design. He cares about design and keeping things simple. Working in the payments processing space, his code has to be fast and stable, two things that are hard to achieve.
Michael Flanagan: Our own PHPDublin organiser and all round experienced PHP Dev. Michael has a history of working in fast paced startups, so he knows the pitfalls that arise from trying to build a product with limited time and resources.
Ken Guest: Another experienced PHP Dev, Ken is a contributor to both PEAR and the phing build framework. he is also active in the Irish Linux community. Ken has seen the evolution of PHP from a simple templating language into a full OOP enterprise quality language. We'd like to hear the lessons he's learned adapting to those changes.
Ricardo Melo: A veteran of software and product development, Ricardo is Backed by more that 15 years experience in designing and managing a wide range of platforms and applications. He's played the roles of CTO, Project Manager and System Architect, so we're sure he has some hard learned lessons to share.
