★ The talks
✩ Talk 1 - Get Some REST - Hugh Noble
Designing good APIs is hard work and REST is a term which is thrown around as much as it is misunderstood. In this talk we’ll break down the constraints that make an API RESTful and explore what each one means.
✩ Talk 2 - Getting a job and progressing in PHP - Q&A Panel
Finding a job, or even progressing through your career, can be tricky in the world of PHP. We've invited a consultant, a Technical Director and a PHP recruiter to answer questions and provide advice on how to evolve your career.
