One Last Time

All good things must come to an end. The 2016 edition of TrueNorthPHP will be the last as the organizers are moving on to other activities. Please join us on November 3-5, 2016 as we will go out on top with an awesome conference! Peter, Chris, and Vic look forward to seeing many old friends and making new ones as we come together to talk about the glue that keeps the internet together, PHP.

It will be three days of learning things you didn't know about PHP and complementary technologies. You'll also get the chance to meet and talk with some of the PHP community's best-known speakers and contributors.

Topic Suggestions

We often get asked what sort of talks people should submit. For 2016 we looking for the following:

  • Strategies for migrating older applications to PHP 7
  • Development workflows in the age of virtual machines and containers
  • Good practices when using modern web application frameworks
  • Essential non-techincal skills for developers
  • Awesome complementary tools

But don't limit yourself to just that! If you have a topic you find interesting, submit it! The worst thing to happen is that we'll say no. The best thing that will happen is we'll say "awesome, let's do this!"

We will be looking for 50 minute sessions with 10 minutes alloted for Q+A and are also looking for 3.5 hour tutorials to be held on the Thursday of the conference.

There is no secret formula to getting your talks accepted and bribing the organizers doesn't work.

Speaker Package

We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. True North PHP does compensate speakers for their travel costs. For full details please take a look at our speaker package information

Diversity Matters!

TrueNorthPHP is committed to creating a conference that is as inclusive as possible. This means we are excited to see submissions from members of groups that are usually under-represented as conference speakers. We also want to showcase Canadian talent and welcome international submissions. Speakers located in the United States. count as international.

We are also committed to ensuring the conference is a place where ideas are exchanged, old friends get together, new friends meet, and harassment is not tolerated. We expect speakers, attendees and sponsor representatives to be professional and courteous to each other. We reserve the right to remove, without refund, ANY attendee (speaker or otherwise) who is unable to adhere to this policy.
