Remember folks. This is the BIG Microsoft meeting. Please invite your .NET guys who think that PHP is just for those ‘penguin’ people. Microsoft is behind PHP, doing its part to prove that PHP has truly been accepted in the enterprise. Be there or be square.
Microsoft + PHP may strike many as an oxymoron, but that’s far from the case! There are quite a few developments coming from Microsoft and it’s Open Source Software Labs that reinforce Microsoft’s commitment to interoperability with other technologies such as PHP, Java and Ruby. A renewed focus on PHP on Windows within both the PHP community and Microsoft has led to a number of offerings including the Web Platform Installer, SQL Server Driver for PHP, and Windows Cache Extension for PHP. Jim O’Neil, Developer Evangelist for Microsoft’s Northeast District, will be on hand to provide an overview of these and other Microsoft technologies that you can leverage with your existing or new PHP applications.
