Cesare: Indeed, it is a great lineup, you have my colleague Felix speaking as well as many other well-known PHP characters. I won't be there myself but phpday is definitely on my list of events to recommend!
Dave: Your first comment set off my spam trap and was moderated, but it took me a while to notice it was there. I didn't publish after the fact because it seemed you had written it in anger ... I blogged how much I liked your event and you refuted my every point in turn1?! I figured since all the other comments were so positive about the event in general, I'd leave it at that - "phpuk" deserves its good publicity this year so let people on the internet be wrong (me) and bask in your well-earned glory :)
