Welcome to the 2009 edition of ZendCon - The PHP Conference. This year's conference will be held October 19th - 22nd at the San Jose Convention Center and is being co-presented by S&S Media. It is the largest gathering of the PHP Community and the premier PHP conference, allowing all attendees to mingle with decision makers, core developers, prominent community members, and so many more.

We are expanding this year's conference to focus on the whole development team and lifecycle of your projects. We therefore are not only having sessions on 'writing PHP code', but are also emphasizing production processes, frameworks, management information, and the maintenance & tuning of servers. Part of doing this, is to expand the PHP Community to not just include the developers, but also the operations people, the managers, ensure that the whole team comes away from ZendCon with the knowledge to deliver better products.
