PHP + UX + WEB = The best low-cost conference in North America. PHP is extremely important, but it’s not the only thing you’ll be learning at the Northeast PHP Conference. This conference is a two-day event where experts focus on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, PHP, Jenkins, UX, API, Agile, and many more.

Not only will you become familiar with all these topics, you will also hear our experts speak about the soft skills necessary for successful developers.

At the end of this conference, you will have learned a magnitude of new skills and lessons, along with how to be a pro developer. Join Cal Evans in his great discussions that will educate you on both hard and soft skills to be a pro.

Check out Cal Evans’ blog post to get a teaser of his ideas.


  • Presenter: Cal Evans
  • When: Friday, August 5, 2016, 3:30 p.m.
  • Where: Victorian Room
  • Title: Going Pro

Abstract: What makes a developer a “professional developer”? Getting paid? Getting quoted? Publishing a book? Let’s take a look at this.

This talk will look at the traits that define a professional developer. Not the hard tech skills, those change with the tools being used. These are the soft and quasi-soft skills that developers have to master to be considered a professional developer.

Along the way there will be some tweetable moments, and of course, a long line of bad jokes. Hopefully though, you will take away a concept that you need to work on to round out your skills and unlock your “Going Pro” badge.
