This event is the initiative of a small group of developers who started the first PHP User Group in Sofia two years ago. Our desire to learn and our love for PHP gave us the courage to start this big event and get together some of the best minds in the PHP community. We have invited some top-notch speakers and we aim that you will enjoy some high-quality presentations. But most of all, we hope to get together some great people who will spend their weekend sharing their know-how and getting to know the large PHP community.
