As people going to the php|works sessions will tell you, there are a lot of good speakers here. Speakers that really know what they’re talking about and have been involved in their subject for quite some time. You know; the kind of people that you as a developer really want to emulate. But I’ve noticed something that makes me really happy, and that is that the speakers are also attending other people’s talks, listening and asking questions. It’s nice to see because it shows that no matter how much the speakers know about their subject, there’s always something new to learn and they’re not so pretentious that they think they know it all.
Hope for us all yet, eh?
