It has been a while since I released the survey about the interest on having additional valued services available to paid subscribers. The survey went very well as a significant number of users expressed immediate interest at least on some of the proposed services.
I have been working on the planning of what will be the first service to be made available which will be online advice and consulting. I am working now on its deployment and I expect to have part of it ready to be tested a some weeks from now. Later I will announce a mailing list for discussion of this and other services as soon as I have something for you to test.
Meanwhile, on an subject not really about the PHP Classes site, but very important for the PHP present and future, if you are not aware yet, finally there will be a PHP conference in North America this year. The existence of this conference is a reflex of the maturity of the PHP as a capable language in the software development market scene.
There are already other PHP conferences in other parts of of the World, but despite North America is the largest market with more than 20% of the PHP developers in the world, until now there was no PHP conference in this continent.
This may a bit late, but if you live in North America, I would like to recommend that you attend this conference that will be held in late October in the California.
- The keynote will be given by the PHP creator, Rasmus Lerdorf. - If you would like to present a PHP related work of yours, you have until September 26rd to submit work in progress reports ( http://www.php-con.com/2002/bof.php ). - If you rush, there is a discounted price for early bird conference subscribers.
