Future of App Development w PHP Co Architect Andi Gutmans

Globant and Zend Technologies have joined forces to create an incredible event with the co-architect of PHP Andi Gutmans.  Because of our great relationship with Globant, BASE has been invited.  This should be an incredible event.



Andi Gutmans, PHP Co-Architect & CEO of Zend Technologies


Andi Gutmans is CEO and co-founder of Zend, the PHP Company. In this role he leads Zend’s focus on helping companies with rapid application development and delivery for web and mobile apps. Since founding Zend, Andi has consistently championed the benefits of openness, standardization and best practices among enterprise IT leaders and the developer community. He 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, followed by 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 close to five million developers worldwide. Under Gutmans’ leadership, Zend has partnered with IBM, Oracle, Microsoft and other companies to advance PHP adoption by enterprises worldwide. 

Gutmans was recognized by as one of the top 10 most visionary tech CEOs in 2010, he was chosen by Mashable as one of the “10 founding fathers of the Web”, and he was named one of Computerworld’s “40 innovative IT people to watch, under the age of 40.” He is a recognized author and frequent speaker on technology and business issues at global industry conferences. Mr. Gutmans received his B.S. in Computer Science from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.

Andi Gutmans in this talk will focus on how software and apps are disrupting every industry, why it means rapid application delivery has become essential, and the implications for dev and ops teams. 

Andi will also share his thoughts on the future of application development, and the type of architecture that is required for success as a developer or leader.
