The schedule for ApacheCon has been published, and it looks like it will be a great conference for PHP developers.


I will be giving a 3 hour PHP security tutorial on Sunday. If you missed the one I gave at OSCON, you're in luck, because I plan to work hard to make this one even better. I'll also make some enhancements to the PHP Security Workbook and provide that as the handout.


In addition to the tutorial, I'm giving a 60 minute talk with mod_perl core developer Geoff Young about testing PHP with Perl (two great tastes that taste great together). Geoff is a fantastic speaker, and this talk should be very fun and entertaining. Mixed in with the inevitable banter between us, we hope to provide some practical and useful information that you can apply directly to your PHP development.


Among the other interesting talks are a 3 hour tutorial about scalable Internet architectures by Theo Schlossnagle, a 60 minute talk on PHP 5 by Andi Gutmans, and Adam Trachtenberg's popular talk, Why PHP 5 Sucks! Why PHP 5 Rocks!.


I usually spend most of my time at conferences in the halls and social gathering places, but I think I'll be attending quite a few talks this year. It's good to see such a nice lineup of talks. I'm definitely looking forward to it.


Hope to see you in Vegas.
