Upcoming conferences

Conferences are both fun and useful. Fun because you meet people and useful because you learn stuff. I have two conferences in the upcoming months, and I hope to see you there!


Last year was my first Cakefest. It was in Los Angeles, and a lot of fun. While I am not using CakePHP and have not used CakePHP in a while it was good to meet the community and share some information that might be useful.

I am honored that they think I did good enough a job to be invited back again this year. And even better: I don't have to fly out, I am actually driving to Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg. The schedule is looking good! I will be doing my talk on sustainable open source contributions there.

Tickets are available for the in-person conference, or you could even get a free ticket for the online stream of the conference. But in-person is usually more fun, so if you have the opportunity, join us!

API Platform Conference

Another conference that I got invited back to is API Platform Conference. Again in driving distance for me, and I had a lot of fun last time, so I'm absolutely looking forward again to being there. The conference is in Lille, in the North of France.

In Lille, I will be doing my Domain-Driven Design basics talk, which focusses on what I think is the most important part of DDD: Understanding the problem. Lille is a beautiful city, the schedule is amazing... I'm really looking forward to it.

This conference also has both in-person and online tickets. If you have the opportunity, I'd love to see you there!
