I'm delighted to announce that I'm speaking at the inaugural PHP Benelux Conference, to be held on Saturday 30th January in Antwerp, Belgium. The talk will be "Passing the Joel Test in the PHP World"; I gave this talk PHPNW09 in October and it was well-received there, so hopefully I can bring the same insight and inspiration to attendees at this new event as well!
On a personal level I'm very pleased to have a reason to visit the Low Countries - Ibuildings is a dutch company and I'm already making plans to link up with my colleagues there by extending the trip by a few days. I've also never been to Antwerp so I'm hoping I'll see something of the city while I'm there, if time allows. The benelux user group contains many friends so I'm looking forward to what I know will be an excellent event and catching up with all the friends who will be there.
If you are attending, or thinking of it, let me know - and come and say "hi" to me on the day :)
