Zend Con – Tutorial Day
Had a great day. Sat in on the ZCE bootcamp (parts 1 & 2) and attended the speakers dinner.
I have to admit that I am very rusty with my PHP, which is why I wanted to sit in on the ZCE Bootcamp. I figured if anything the bootcamp would at least remind me of all that I have forgotten – and it did… it was scary how much I have forgotten. Christian did a fantastic job, keeping what could have been bland, boring information interesting and engaging. He has some real brain ticklers in his deck that more then showed me how much I have lost. If you are thinking of going for your ZCE – I can not recommend his tutorials enough.
Afterwards I eventually made it to the Speakers dinner and again had a great time talking to old and new friends. Had some fantastic talks through the night from the technical to the personal (Michelangelo, I promise I will keep thinking about what you said).
Unfortunately the timezone changes caught up with me so went up to bed at about 9PM (midnight my time). I always forget how much the time differences can take out of you.
