This year, as part of my annual trip to Canada and the USA, I’ve been asked to give two talks at the annual PHP Québec conference in Montréal. I haven’t been back to that city since 1993 when I graduated from University, and it will be interesting to see how it goes. (Although I suspect that while Beijing basks in nearly 20C (nearly 70F) weather every day and even Seattle and New York were closer to 10C (50F), Montréal is still hanging below freezing most days and has over a metre of snow on the ground).
I will be giving talks on internationalisation (commonly just called i18n) and giving your database servers a break with memcached. If you’re anywhere in the neighbourhood, come on by for some good fun. I’ll be getting back to regular programming content this weekend.[Read Rest of Article]
