Win a DayCamp 4 Developers #5 Ticket!

AmsterdamPHP believes in investing and forming new speakers to share their knowledge with the community in general. For this reason our stage is always open for new speakers who want to take the first step, and we are always happy to coach and provide feedback in these cases.

In the fifth edition of DC4D, Cal Evans has put together a super team of speakers who will guide you through your first stage experience and beyond. If you have ever wanted to get started as a speaker, this is the place to start.

Of course, once you are done learning over there, we want you to come back and grace our stage with your new and awesome talk. So to help this plan along we will be giving away one ticket for someone to attend DC4D#5 for free! It’s an online conference so that should be no problem for anyone.

How can you win?

It’s simple: “Send out a tweet and tell us why you want to be a speaker or why you think being a speaker is important for a developer’s career, and tag it with #amsterdamPHP” (you must be following @amsterdamPHP)

On Friday the 15th of March we will choose a random tweet and award the prize, so be sure to follow us on twitter so that we can send you a DM about the prize.

Research: Type-safety in PHP

Aside

Robert Stoll, an ICT student from Switzerland is researching type safety in PHP for his undergraduate study. This is a very interesting topic and he wants to see how the community deals with this in its day to day development.

The deliverables of the research will be provided in an Open Source Project at the conclusion of the research.

If you want to help, all he needs is 5 to 20 minutes of your time to answer a survey.
