TEK·X Day Three

Sadly, today was the final day of TEK·X. However, there was plenty of information and networking packed into the last few days. Marco Tabini and the rest of the team put on a top-notch conference. Being the last day, there were only three sessions. I started out with Jason Austin’s Lean Mean PHP Machine session where he talked about implementing software development best practices in a small team. Lorna Jane Mitchell then gave an excellent talk, without the aid of slides, called Open Source Your Career. Her talk provided a nice transition to the Community Roundtable session with Michelangelo van Dam, Lorna Jane Mitchell, Rafael Dohms, Ben Ramsey, and Keith Casey moderating. User groups were a big focus of the roundtable and I hope more people were inspired to start their own local PHP user groups.
