23–24 Oct 2019



It is hard to believe but PHP is 25 years old. Join us as we celebrate this historic anniversary with special panels, anniversary parties, recounting the last 25 years of where PHP started and how far it has come. So study up on your PHP trivia and join us for a spectacular event!

At it’s heart, php[world] 2019 is the Washington D.C. area conference for programmers who use the PHP programming language. We’ve been running annually since 2014.

PHP as a language and a community has been rapidly changing in the last few years. A staggering 83% of the Web runs on PHP, and those websites are built on frameworks such as Drupal, WordPress, Magento, Symfony, Laravel and Laminas (formerly Zend Framework), each of which has their own strong community. We created a conference designed to appeal to all these communities and bring them together to learn from each other and collaborate across projects.
