The PHP Conference is an annual event; it gathers a community of developers and first-level world speakers. This year it took place in Centro Cultural Konex in Buenos Aires and it was attended by prestigious Fabien Potencier –Symfony Creator- Michael “Monty” Widenius –MySQL Creator- and Brad Fitzpatrick –Memcached Creator-) and other geniuses.
This huge event motivated us to organize a trip with almost every developer at Keetup; such experience resulted in an explosive cocktail full of learning, laughter, some drinks and deep talks which made our journey an unforgettable experience.
Keetup team began the adventure on Thursday at the office where members took part in a FIFA 2014 tournament and a great foosball match -football table- while waiting for the bus that would later collect us all.
After 7 hours of travelling in foggy weather– time for anecdotes and some snores as well- we tried to be full of beans for the morning ahead. After dealing with General Paz traffic we finally arrived and were able to check in and get ready for the first talks of the day. Lots of adrenaline and expectations due to the different lectures scheduled.
We all kept our expectations high and the second day also provided us with excellent speeches indeed. Unfortunately, we had to leave early and we missed the prize drawing. During our way back home we shared individual experiences and feelings about the conference.
In conclusion, we all agreed to the fact that sharing this experience as a team goes beyond the conference itself and the learning. We truly believe this unites us. Thus, it is highly valuable.
No doubts Keetup members will be taking part of PHP Conference again in 2015!
