PHP North West is a community-driven conference running in Manchester, UK, every year. I’ve been involved with organising three out of the four events so far (and keynoted at the other one!) and have seen the event grow from an idea to “we need a bigger venue!” and beyond. I’m a regular speaker (and occasional organiser) at other events, but this one is absolutely special. For the standard of the schedule, for the affordable prices, and (perhaps as a result of the two) for the fantastic atmosphere at the event! Best of all – it’s a cracking conference and brings great knowledge and collaboration to everyone who becomes part of it.
