Webkonf 2011 recap

published on October 10, 2011.

This past weekend the Hungarian web conference was held in the amazing Buda Castle, in Budapest. It was a one day conference, with talks being held on 3 tracks, all in all 21 talk. This was my first time here and I attended as a speaker with a talk on Zend Framework 2 (more on that later).

The conference was great, and, as per the organizers, attended by more than 700 people! The building is quite big, so I didn’t feel like it was too crowded, but there were some complaints about not having enough seats for everyone. I found it weird that there was no proper lunch time set, with only 15-20 minutes left between sessions, so I ended up eating only after 3PM.

The talks I attended were also great, especially the PHP 5.4 introduction talk by Kovács Ferenc, aka Tyr43l, and the MySQL high availability and the InnoDB data recovery talks by Podor István.

As for my talk… Well, that was just plain horror. I got so nervous at the beginning that I completely forgot what was I supposed to say. A completely blank mind. Just standing there, looking at the slides and not knowing what am I even doing there… Completely fubar’d the first part of the presentation. The second part got somewhat better, but my overall feeling is just… Ugh, kill me now, please.

Anyway, I decided to give up on my speaking “career” and just stick to programming.

Happy hackin’!

Speaking at Webkonf 2011

published on September 12, 2011.

I’ll be giving a talk at this year’s Hungarian Web Conference, Webkonf, which will be held on October 8th in Budapest. The topic of the talk is Zend Framework 2 and with the recent happenings in the framework world and in the community (thanks Paddy!), it will be both interesting and challenging to create a talk worth listening :) Oh, and I’ll be presenting in Hungarian :)

If you’ll be there, I’d like to meet you :) I’ll be in Budapest from Friday the 7th, till Sunday the 9th.

Speaking at DORS/CLUC 2011

published on April 12, 2011.

DORS/CLUC is a conference about GNU/Linux and everything open source which takes place in Zagreb, Croatia, on May 16-18. I sent two talk proposals and both got accepted! Yey! The first talk will about, the story behind it, the ideas, the plans… The second talk will be an introduction to Zend Framework. I know, zf2 is right behind the corner with all it’s PHP5.3 goodness, but we are still, and unfortunately will be for a while, stuck with hosting providers running php5.2.

Hopefully I’m not going to be the only PHP dev there and someone will find the talk(s) worth their time :D

More than anything I’m looking forward to finally visiting Croatia and meeting fellow hackers :)
