3rd June 2020 - 4th June 2020

The first annual PHP Wales Conference

A 2 day event full of talks and workshops, inside Cardiffs City Hall on the 3rd and 4th June 2020.

Held in the picturesque setting of Central Cardiff, accessible from local airports and train stations - PHP Wales will be bringing together around 400 PHP developers from around the world.

With your help we can put on our inaugural conference at PHPWales, bringing together 400 developers from around the world. Spread over 2 days in the capital city of Wales (Cardiff). Hosted in the Cardiff City Hall be sure to come along for the chance to learn from some of the best in the industry. With this being our first run, we wanted to set the theme to ensure the message was clear. Our theme is community, inclusion, and the importance of these. We have all seen when a community goes bad, or individuals are excluded from a community for one reason or another. We want to remind people that we are all one community of developers - but for these 2 days we are uniting under the banner of PHP.

Our Tracks

API Track

The API track is dedicated to all things API, from OpenAPI specifications, to JSON:API schema to how to build a microservice with the beautiful Slim4 this track is for your

Tooling and Language Track

The Tooling and Language Track is the track that covers pretty much anything not covered in the other track, something of a catch all. From MySQL8 to how to utilise PHP7.4 and beyond. If you want to give a more general tech talk, or a talk that doesn’t fall into the unConf or API track this is the track for you.

unConf Track

The unConf track is a track dedicated to lightning talks and panel discussions, this is where we will hear a lot of different talks (on any technology subject) and have discussions on larger subjects.

PHPWales is a new conference and is an attempt to bring together all developers under the banner of PHP for the day to learn some cool new things, but also strengthen the community and promote inclusion. The theme for our first conference is community and inclusion, we want to stress the importance of community for developers and how important inclusion is for a community.

This is the first PHP conference in Wales, and we aim to set the standards for what a conference should be and how it should operate. All while allowing us to provide an incredible learning opportunity and conference experience. And for that, we cannot thank you enough.
