Oracle Conference PHP Hands-on-labs are on Sunday 21st September 2008

This year there are two PHP Hands-on-labs at the Oracle OpenWorld conference, teaching about building PHP Web applications. We provide computers set up all ready for you to use. You can turn up, log in, and learn about this thing they call PHP.
The labs pack a lot into their respective slots, and I think you'll be very happy with them. The first lab is an introduction to PHP and the OCI8 extension. This is a new and improved version of the lab we ran last year. The second lab is a brand new course. It looks at more of the technologies used to build PHP Web apps - connection pooling, AJAX, debugging and frameworks.
The key thing I want to highlight: the PHP labs are on Sunday 21st - the very first day of the conference. From a marketing perspective this isn't perfect: it means that if you come to the exhibition hall on Monday or later, meet us at the PHP booth, and then want to attend the PHP labs, you will have missed out. So, make up your mind early and also spread the word to anyone else who might be interested.
The labs aren't the only events being run. I've mentioned one of the other exciting sessions in an earlier post. Kuassi has a full schedule here.
