Our 3-day, multi-track, PHP developer conference will take place on September 10th–12th, in Seattle, Washington. It will be hosted at Impact Hub Seattle, a cool co-working and event venue in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of downtown Seattle, within walking distance of Pike Place Market, the Puget Sound waterfront, the Seattle Underground Tour, Century Link Field, many hotels and restaurants, and the SoundTransit Central Link light rail—for easy access to SeaTac (SEA) airport. It is also only 2 miles away from the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center.
