Interviewing Jeremy Coates, the organizer of the PHP North West Conference - Thijs Feryn


My special guest is the organizer of this very conference. His name is Jeremy Coatesand we’ve known each other for quite a while. It was Jeremy who inspired us to organize the PHPBenelux Conference, which we did back in 2010. Safe to say that this man is a source of inspiration. This year marksthe 8th edition of the conference. I’ve been to 5 of them and I’ve been a speaker at4 of the ones I attended.

This episode is all about organizing conferences which is no surprise when you put 2 community conference organizers in the same room. We give theaudience a bit of insight and explain how we initially started out and how we have grown. Both of our conferences are now established events and we managed to pull it off without a lot of funding.

Hope you enjoy this one. If you do, give it a like on Youtubeor Soundcloud.

And thanks again to Combellfor sponsoring the episode!
