The open social takes place at Brix & Ale, the restaurant inside of the Sheraton, starting at 5:30 PM. This is a place to see old friends, catch up, and meet some new faces in a relaxed, stress-free environment. The restaurant has an excellent selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as a full menu of delicious options. So join us for some fun and relaxing before the conference swings into full gear.

Join us in the Atrium to kick off the first night of the conference. Hang out with friends new and old to discuss the great talks of the day and unwind a bit. This is also a superb time to talk with our generous sponsors and get your swag. Drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic will be available.
During the first hour of the opening night reception we will have four php[architect] book authors set up with copies of their books. Bring your book to have it signed, ask questions, or just chat with the authors about their book. Don’t have a book? You can purchase one there and have it signed.
Let’s keep the learning going! Join a meeting of the DCPHP Developer’s Community for a presentation by Fabien Potencier – the creator of the Symphony framework. (This event is open to the public and all conference attendees holding any ticket type.)
Get your gamer geek on! Two of our php[world] speakers, Gary Hockin and Chris Tankersley, will be recording a session of their podcast: “Jerks Talk Games.” Hear about the games they are playing and past games they have enjoyed. Games range from retro to modern, and across nearly all computer systems and platforms.
The team at EngineYard have offered to sponsor an unofficial Karaoke outing one evening on them! They’ve chosen Wednesday night and will take place at Xtreme Wings just a half hour walk or a short ride down the street. The fun will begin at 9pm and run until late into the evening. So if you have the late night energy, you won’t want to miss this!
Join us again in the Atrium to wind down from the second day of sessions. Drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic will be available. Don’t forget to visit the sponsors if you haven’t done so yet.
Let’s keep the content coming! Join a meeting of the WebNEXT NOVA user group for a presentation. (This event is open to the public and all conference attendees holding any ticket type.)
More interested in Laravel instead? At the same time, we’ll be having a User Group presentation on Presenting Data from your Laravel Application from Capital Laravel. Come join us for either of these UG meetings this evening. Both of them open to the public!
Time to sit back and relax with your fellow conference attendees. The conference is getting close to winding down, and it’s time to kick back and relax a bit. From 8 PM until everyone is exhausted, we will break out the board games (and maybe hook up an Xbox as well) for attendees to join each other, and hang out until late. Find a game you love, a game that’s new to you, or just hang out with new friends. Extremely low key and enjoyable for all.
The team behind WurstCon (the traveling un-conference designed around eating hot dogs & sausage) are planning an outing after the conference has concluded on Friday. Watch Twitter or look back here for more details in the coming weeks!
