What is PHPCamp?

PHPCamp is an unconference where PHP developers, enthusiasts, and experts gather to share knowledge, network, and collaborate. Unlike traditional conferences, an unconference is participant-driven, meaning attendees get to propose, vote on, and lead sessions.

  • Hands-On Workshops: Engage in interactive workshops designed to enhance your skills. Get practical experience and learn new techniques that you can apply to your projects.
  • Stay Updated: Keep up with the latest trends and advancements in the PHP world. Learn about new tools, frameworks, and best practices that can help you become a better developer.
