On 28th June (23:59 Vienna local time (GMT +2)) session submissions will close for DrupalCon Vienna 2017 and we're looking for more great speakers.

After volunteering on the Core Conversation track team last year, I am now helping the PHP track team find and select sessions for this year's European conference. As PHP the foundation for Drupal it's great to hear speakers talk about related trends, best practices, and tools. Since the release of Drupal 8 we have "got off the island" and started using components from other platforms and frameworks, and embraced things like Composer, PHPUnit, and PSR. These changes have made the PHP track more important than ever.

As you'll see in the track description we're looking for sessions in three main topic areas.

  • Tools - Are you a PHPStorm ninja? a debugging master? or have the perfect dev environment?
  • Libraries - We can pull in libraries with Composer, and abstract things into libraries. Can you speak to this?
  • Testing - PHPUnit is the way forward. What have you been doing with it? How do you fully test your code? 

If you have an idea for a session please submit it and I look forward to seeing you there.
