Last weekend the PHP Unconference took place in Hamburg. With about 120 participants it took awhile to vote for the offered talks but at the end more than 30 sessions appeared on the agenda for two days and that promised to be an exciting weekend. You’ll find all topics and summaries on PHP Unconference Wiki. There were many interesting sessions for choice, for example ‚MySQL Performance Tuning‘ by Kris Köhntopp, with which started the first day. 45 minutes, as it turned out, were not long enough for this talk and I would have liked to hear more about it. During the talk ‚Ask the core developer‘ by Johannes Schlüter the current moods and the future of PHP and the community were discussed, yet not all of the attendees had the same opinion about that. Security, too, was a topic of the unconference and Johann-Peter Hartmann had three talks about it: ‚Secure PHP Installations‘, ‚Security Development Lifecycle‘ and ‚Web 2.0 Security‘. But not only the sessions themself were very interesting. The breaks were used for discussions and it was a good possibility to get in contact with other participants. Thanks to the Orga-Team and the sponsors we got a great food and drinks during the two days between the sessions.
