We recognize the large amount of effort that goes into preparing a professional conference presentation and respect it. We also realize the amount of time that is taken from work, and lost financial opportunities that can exist when traveling for a conference. We therefore only feel it proper to at least attempt to offset the expenses of our speakers (and wish that we could pay more than we do). There we strive to ensure that php[world] has one of the best compensation packages in the PHP conference circuit. We rely on having amazing speakers to make our event successful and believe that our speakers should be taken care of fairly.
If one or more of your talks is accepted, assuming that you need reimbursement (i.e., your company isn’t willing to cover your costs), we will provide you with a full compensation package to offset your costs.
Simply stated, we expect that you will prepare a professional presentation, adhere to our Code of Conduct, show up 15 minutes before your session and present to the best of your abilities. Completely wowing our attendees, that’s it—easy, no?
We treat you as a professional and expect you to return that favor. This means ensuring that your sessions match the length of your slot and that you are well prepared in advance.
