We're returning to Freelancer.com this month with a short-and-sweet meetup before PHP New Zealand. There's a few last minute tickets available at http://2015.phpconference.org.nz/ .
Life After Death: How to handle abandoned projects
Open Source software development is a very important part of the technology ecosystem. Some companies are taking this to heart by actively contributing developer time and resources in order to develop and open source internal projects. But people change employers, priorities and directions move, and systems die.
In this talk, we will discuss aspects of open source software development and the ownership of code, including licensing, copyright, project forking, and discussion about how to handle issues of developer departure and project abandonment.
A migration guide for PHP7 - Get started tonight!
PHP 7 RC1 was tagged just days ago and its time to start preparing for the imminent release.
This talk helps attendees get started with the new build, what to look out for and how to start upgrading. We'll cover installation, code migration, deprecation and testing.
