Wow - it's already September and I barely have time left to mention this: I'll be at PHP|Works in Atlanta next week catching up with the PHP world and seeing some new faces. I'm presenting a couple of sessions - check out the schedule. You can see overall there is a great balance of topics and some fantastic presenters. If only there was just a single track, I'd be able to attend every talk.
While I'm plugging the conference, I also want to mention the associated magazine, php|architect. This packs a lot of solid content into each edition and often includes some long and detailed articles of great value. As a special sample, the May 2007 edition, with a lead article on Unicode, can be downloaded for free.
