As second anniversary of ZgPHP meetups is coming soon, we decided to organize a mini PHP conference in Zagreb, first PHP conference in this region. It will be held in Croatian Chamber of Economy, Nova Cesta 7, Zagreb on September 14th. With help of our co-organizers, Croatian Chamber of Economy and Croatian Society for Open Systems and Internet and sponsors we are able to giveaway first 80 tickets!
ZgPHP meetups have started as a regular monthly meetups in September of 2011, since then we have held 23 meetups, 16 of them included talks (usually 2 of them). Most of talks in last year have been recorded and are available to everybody interested.
On our mailing lists, Facebook & Twitter we have around 250 members, in average we have 25 visitors on each of our monthly meetups and for mini conference we are hoping to gather 120 PHP developers (not only Zagreb but Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia ...).
Though we already have respectable list of talkers from the region, we are still looking for few more. If you are interested, contact us on zgphpmeetup [at] gmail [dot] com, with title and short description of your talk and short biography. We are able to help with costs (up to a point though, please contact us for details) or we can put your company as one of sponsors if you would prefer it that way. Call for paper is opened till August 25th, 2013.
We are expecting around 120 visitors, with help of sponsors by now we are able to giveaway 80 tickets for 0 EURO's to interested visitors and we are hoping to be able to provide everybody with such a ticket. We are a non-profit conference, all of the proceeds that we are able to gather will go only to cost of organizing a conference: travel expenses, food and beverages & equipment needed. If you are interested, contact us for more details by email: zgphpmeetup [at] gmail [dot] com.
Interested in visiting us? Please register and RSVP on meetup.com. Number of tickets is limited!
We would like to take this moment to thank Croatian Chamber of Economy for giving us their venue for organizing this conference, with out their help this event would not be possible.
