I just got back from ZendCon 2008 and it was pretty fun. Much more fun than a typical work week. I got to learn a lot about the new features of PHP, some common and not so common security pitfalls and I met a lot of rad programmers. The highlight for me though, was the Yahoo party. Yahoo raffled off a Nintendo Wii, which I happened to win! When I went to pick it up from the rafflers the crowd of PHP developers started shouting “Speech! Speech!” So I stood up on a chair and told them I was an AS3 developer, and they promptly booed me down. I escaped unscathed, with the Wii.
Look at that happy lad! Time to get this thing ready for some homebrew apps.
