Article: phpGG Frontend event 2009 report

January 27th, 2009

I just posted an elaborate report/review of the phpGG Frontend event that took place on 24th Jan 2009 in Briza Den Haag. A must read if you were not there, but wish you was :)

The main subjects covered:

  1. User experience on the web (Dutch spoken)
  2. Flex and AIR for PHP programmers (English spoken with a Romanian accent)
  3. Javascript: 8 Reasons every PHP developer should love it (Dutch spoken)
  4. The frontend is your best friend (Dutch spoken)

The slides showed during this event are included in that post (soon).

This is my report of that day!
