Come to Manchester and join in this year's fabulous PHPNW conference. Building on the success of previous years, we have a bigger schedule, more venues, more great content and hopefully more fun than ever! With speakers from across the PHP sphere and its allied technologies, there is something for everyone at this event, and always someone to talk tech to if you want to.
