Speaking at php[world] 2018

php[world], held annually in the greater D.C. metro area, has long been one of my favorite conferences. It was my first non-WordCamp conference speaking engagement, and I’ve been lucky enough to speak at or attend all but one php[world] since it started in 2014.

This year, I’m fortunate to count myself among the speakers, giving two talks this November!

Avoiding Swearing for Men’s Health

Sadly, I’m not participating in Movember this year. It’s for rather selfish reasons, admittedly (I’m speaking at php[world] in Washington, D.C. this week, which is the largest speaking engagement of my career, and don’t want to be mid-‘stache during the conference), buthat doesn’t mean I don’t want to be involved with Movember. As I won’t be shaving off the beard for some mustache fun this month, I’d like to propose this alternative:

Goodbye, Buckeye.

Today is my last day as a developer at Buckeye Interactive.

Beginning November 17th, I’ll be joining the team at 10up as a Senior Web Engineer. That’s after a week of recharging the mental batteries, then four days in Washington, D.C. for php[world]. I’m excited to be joining one of the top WordPress development teams in the world, taking on new clients and new challenges.
