With just over a week remaining on the PHP North West Call for Papers, plans for this Manchester-based conference are fairly racing along. The call for papers closes on 21st September (in time for me arriving home from ZendCon so we can make some decisions before I shoot off again). So far the submissions have been of a very high quality and I'm really excited about this event. In addition we have confirmed Derick Rethans as one of the keynote speakers, more details about that on the PHPNW site itself.
Tickets will be on sale somewhere around the end of September or beginning of October, and we're already finalising some of the sponsorships - thanks so much to the companies who are getting involved in the event. So many of them are really adding to the experience as well as just buying advertising space, its giving the event a very special feel. I'm looking forward to seeing at least some of you in Manchester on November 22nd!!
