Saint Petersburg, FL
Our group was contacted by, php[tek] Conference Chair, Eli White with some php[tek]tastic news.
The creative minds behind php[architect] magazine have been running php[tek] as an annual PHP & web technologies conference since 2006. It's a PHP conference like no other: it brings together great technology content and great people and mixes them up in a wonderful cocktail of PHP fun. You'll find high-quality presentations by the brightest experts in the PHP world; coupled with a welcoming and friendly community of attendees and speakers. Buying a ticket to php[tek] includes access to all 3 days of the main conference (May 21st-23rd) as well as breakfast & lunch each day, swag bag goodies, plus access to all evening activities. There are currently three types of tickets offered, based upon your situation: Corporate, Individual, and Student.
Eli wanted to reach out, to let us know about a couple promotions they are extending to PHP User Groups for their upcoming php[tek] 2014 conference.
Early Bird sales for the conference just ended on February 15th, but Eli wants to make sure PHP as a Social Activity is well taken care of.
That last part (the caveat) sounds exciting! Assuming our group receives one of the "Golden Tickets", I'd like us to have a head start in preparing the 'fun' activity for determining which one of you will be the lucky recipient. To this end, I've created a php[tek] 2014 contest poll; take a look, cast your votes, cross your fingers!
Please contact me if you have any additional ideas, I'll add them as options for us to vote on; and I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.
