I had great pleasure to attend to Dutch PHP Conference day 2, as a replacement for collegue of mine. The conference met all my expectations – organisation was on very high level and talks were worth listening. Firstly I attended opening keynote by Helgi Þormar Þorbjörnsson, who spoke about importance of APIs in nowadays bussiness. He was very convincing and his arguments has made a lot of sense. Then I listened to Lorna Jane Mitchell and her OAuth talk. She perfectly describes what OAuth is, its benefits and shared a lot of examples with audience. Then we attended speach about Shared MySQL farm by Thijs Feryn – example of hosting MySQL in shared environment. After typical dutch lunch we went to Agility and Quality talk given by Sebastian Bergmann. Sebastians knowledge and experience is very impressive. The last regular session was one about Hadoop for PHP by David Zülke. It was the best one I attended. David spoke in very entertaining way and I guess that every attendee has some  Hadoop basics after that. But there were not only basics, but real life stats and live demo, which showed the power of Hadoop. In the end, Cal Evans refers in very charismatic way the idea of an open teams, the importance of flexibility and respect for the developers work.
I need to admit, that it was a very good conference and I willing to go there in next year. I hope it will be even better than this one 🙂
