BarCampDC2 Unconference for Web Geeks and Geekettes

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Yesterday I got to experience my first BarCamp right here in DC.

For any of you not familiar with the BarCamp movement, this was a volunteer-run tech community gathering based on the principle that every participant should actively contribute in some way to the event. Newcomers especially are encouraged to give a talk or to facilitate a discussion.

Sessions I attended (speaker/facilitator):

The Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University graciously provided the space including the central meeting room and several breakout rooms.

Many of us wandered over to McFadden’s for an afterparty, partly financed by sponsors. It was great to see many familiar faces and to meet several new people in a fun and friendly environment.

DC PHP Conference & Expo, June 2-4, 2008

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

I’m going to talk about “How to Make Application Security Suck Less” at this international conference, hosted locally in Washington, DC.

The keynote speakers will be Kshemendra Paul from OMB, Christopher Jones from Oracle, and Chris Shiflett from OmniTI.

Local PHP agitator Keith Casey will moderate the featured panel discussion on PHP IDEs. Panelists will be: Cal Evans (Zend), Wez Furlong (OmniTI), David Sklar (Ning), Eli White (Digg), and Jeff Griffiths (ActiveState).

I’m looking forward to the interesting people, informative talks and great conversations that I expect based on last year’s experience. Hope to see you there!
