The PHP UK Conference is now in its fifth year and is bigger and better than ever. Friday's event has 16 different hour-long talks from some of the world's best PHP speakers, covering core, database and various specialist topics. It takes place at the modern Business Design Centre in London's bustling Islington area, close to Kings Cross and Euston and just two minutes walk from Angel underground station, and as usual we've arranged social events for both the evening before and straight after the event - the former being free to anyone to come along and the latter starting with a sponsored bar by Facebook (see http://www.phpconference.co.uk/socials). The registration price also includes a buffet lunch and dessert, refreshments throughout the day, cloakroom facilities, access to discounted books from O'Reilly and Packt publishers, countless networking opportunities, and a raffle with over 50 prizes on offer.
