At its heart, php[world] is the Washington D.C. area conference for programmers who use the PHP programming language. We’ve been running annually since 2014, and are produced by a joint effort between php[architect] magazine, and One for All Events LLC.
PHP as a language and a community has been rapidly changing in the last few years. A staggering 83% of the Web runs on PHP, and those websites are built on frameworks such as Drupal, WordPress, Magento, Symfony, ZF, and Laravel, each of which has their own strong community. We created a conference designed to appeal to all these communities and bring them together. Hence, php[world] was born. An event intended to bring the entire world of PHP together in one place, to encourage cross-pollination of ideas and sharing of ideals.
