Sponsor Reception

Join us Thursday evening for a reception in the sponsor area to relax and unwind after a long day of learning. Grab a drink and visit all of our wonderful sponsors who support and make php[tek] possible. Make sure to save some energy to join us later for Community Night and dinner immediately following the reception. 

Community Night: PHPirate Movie Party

Immediately following the Sponsor Reception join us in the Ballroom for our conference party and dinner. This year we are doing something completely different for the evening, and throwing a movie party!  We’ll be screening Muppet Treasure Island, followed by Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl.  We’ll be serving pizza (and maybe some other snacks) for the evening as well!

We can’t let all of our traditions die however, so we’ll still be breaking out the bins of board games, playing Magic the Gathering, and commencing general geekiness all at the same time!

This evening sponsored by IBM.

Friday: June 1st

PHP TestFest

All Friday afternoon, from 1:30pm – 5:00pm, we will be hosting a PHP TestFest in Georgia 5, hosted by Sammy Powers. Have you ever wanted to help contribute back to PHP but didn’t know how?  Well this TestFest is for you! TestFest seeks to create more PHP core contributors by introducing PHP programmers to the PHP language test suite, teaching them how to write phpt tests. PHP can always use more tests as we strive for 100% coverage of the langauge itself.  The phpt test suite used by PHP is simple to learn, and you can quickly start contributing tests back to the project!

Just show up with your laptop ready to learn, and Sammy will help get you set up to contribute, and help you through getting your first contributions written!

NOTE: This event is also open to the public. Anyone can attend this event even if they don’t have a ticket to php[tek]!

After Party

This year we are inviting everyone to attend the official after party Friday night at 8:00 pm.  This is a simple affair designed for locals and people who are still in town that night.  Meet us downtown at the Joystick Gamebar for video games, drinks, karaoke, board games, and just hanging out.  Drinks and food are on you, but it should be a blast.

The address of the venue is 427 Edgewood Ave SE, it’s a quick ride over in an Uber or Taxi (~8 minutes).  You can also reach it by taking the MARTA for $2.50 — Take the Gold/Red line from the Peachtree station to Five Points, transfer to the Blue/Green, and get off at King Memorial for a short walk. (Total time ~30 minutes, with ~18 minutes total walking).  Or you can take the 1 mile walk with a group of friends! (~22 minutes)
