The mid-conference social event

An important part of any conference is being able to network with other delegates and PHP UK is no exception. We will be putting on two social events - before and during the conference.


February 15

Wednesday night kicks off the conference with a night at the pub. We'll be meeting at Finch's Pub on Finsbury Square (City Road) from 7pm til close for drinks, snacks, and a chance to meet other delegates before the conference starts.

At 8pm special guest Scott MacVicar of Facebook will be presenting a talk. Drinks and chat will then continue after the presentation.

The pre-conference social is open to anyone with an interest in PHP.

7pm - Drinks, snacks and chat
8pm - Talk by Scott MacVicar
9pm - More drinks and chat

Talk details:
Internal Tools at Facebook
Running a company can be tough, but how about if you have 15,000 employees with offices all over the world? And if 4,000 of those employees are engineers? Come learn how Facebook uses technology to solve these problems and how Facebook itself is the key to work productivity.

About the Speaker:
Scott is an Engineering Manager at Facebook working on their internal tools team. He’s previously worked on HipHop for PHP, is a PHP core contributor and a contributor & maintainer of several other main PHP extensions. Along with coding he enjoys running, cooking and is a fan of drinking good whisky.

We have exclusive private hire of the downstairs/cellar bar.
