I have been selected to speak at PHP Quebec at the end of March. Given big names in PHP like Ilia Alshanetsky and Derick Rethans will be there ( — and I will finally get to meet Chris Shiflett face-to-face), I am honored by this opportunity to share my experience bringing PHP to the enterprise. I will be talking about Enterprise PHP Coding Standards — the subject of issue 03.05 of International PHP Magazine and also a series of blog entries on this site (see part one, part two, and part three). I hear Montreal is a beautiful city, and am looking forward to the conference. So far I have been preparing by listening to KD Lang’s Hymns Of The 49th Parallel on repeat. More on this blog as I prepare for the talk and expand my thinking on the importance of coding standards in the enterprise.
