The PHP UK Conference is a full featured event, and ticket prices include all of the following:


Anyone is welcome to attend the conference, whether you're a professional, hobbyist, manager, or just starting out, there's something for everyone.

PHP UK operates a Code of Conduct and we encourage all delegates to read it before attending the conference.


PHP UK Conference was started in 2006 with the aim to offer the local PHP community access to industry updates and professional development at an affordable rate. Costs are minimised to keep ticket prices as low as possible, and any surplus funds are used to fund community events throughout the year and to fund the following year's conference.


With over 15 years combined event management experience, and over 22 years combined development experience, our organising team are excited to bring our eleventh PHP conference to the UK. We organise several events in London, including both the Golang UK Conference and the PHP London user group.
