Speaking at BostonPHP, December 12, 2012

September 24, 2012
The Yii Book If you like my writing on the Yii framework, you'll love "The Yii Book"!

I’m very happy to say that on Wednesday, December 12, 2012, I’ll be speaking to the BostonPHP group in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The title of my presentation is “How To Be A Web Developer”.

In the speech, I’ll┬áprovide a blueprint for how one becomes a Web developer considering the current standards, technologies, and business environment of 2012 and going into 2013. The overarching discussion is on the specific technologies you’ll need to learn and in what order. The role that each technology plays in Web development will be explained, as will some of the issues to watch out for. You’ll also be introduced to some of the applications and other tools that you would be expected to know and use. Towards the end of the presentation, extra time will be given to my favorite PHP framework–Yii–as well as how to get experience and jobs in the Web development field.
