In this keynote session, Andi Gutmans will explore the latest innovations around cloud, mobile and API first development. Andi will share new developer tools, practices and innovations.
Andi Gutmans is CEO of Zend Technologies and provides vision and direction for Zend’s innovative leadership in the evolution and growth of PHP application development software and services. He has been instrumental in establishing and promoting PHP as a technology platform of choice for Web and mobile applications running on-premise and in the cloud. Andi has consistently championed the benefits of PHP openness, standardization and best practices among enterprise IT leaders and the developer community. As part of this effort, he has established strategic partnerships for Zend with Adobe, IBM, Microsoft and Oracle, and led the vision and formation of the company’s Zend Framework open source project — two initiatives that are helping to drive PHP adoption among large enterprises worldwide.
Andi has been a key contributor to PHP since 1997, when he and Zend co-founder and CTO Zeev Suraski developed the foundation for PHP 3, widely acknowledged as a major turning point for the language. Soon afterward, Andi and Zeev introduced the Zend Engine, which powers PHP 4 and PHP 5. Today, more than one-third of the Web runs on PHP, which is used by an estimated 5 million developers worldwide.
Andi is a recognized author and frequent speaker on technology and business issues at global industry conferences. He is a member of the PHP Group and the Apache Software Foundation and holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.
