Distill: An opportunity to get out of your comfort zone

Speaking

As part of my work at Engine Yard I have been involved in helping shape and organize a new conference, Distill, which will be held on Treasure Island in San Francisco, CA on August 8-9th 2013.

The conference will bring together a bunch of folks from different technological backgrounds to share information, and cross-pollinate ideas. Just like Ruby on Rails kickstarted the PHP frameworks explosion, we (the PHP community) have an opportunity to give back not only to the Ruby/Rails community but to Javascript, Python, Java, and database communities, and who knows what else will make a showing.

Hopefully, we can all “get off the island” and allow us to create something awesome.

The Call For Proposals is currently open, and closes on April 9th, and I highly encourage everyone to submit.
