Zeev Suraski, CTO and Co-Founder of Zend, is set to close PHPCon East’s
program with a keynote address on PHP5, Zend Engine 2 and the Future of
PHP. Suraski’s work in PHP has led to many rewrites and redesigns
including the creation of the Zend Engine which powers PHP 4.0 and the
design of other crucial PHP 4.0 components such as a server subtraction
layer and multithreading support.

PHPCon East is three days of intensive learning through hands-on
tutorials and three technical session tracks on Enterprise PHP,
Applications Development and XML/Web Services. Suraski joins other PHP
notables on the conference program including PHP inventor Rasmus
Lerdorf, MySQL’s Zak Greant, Apache.org’s Jim Winstead and authors Luke
Welling and Laura Thompson. Other highlights include:

– Author Christian Wenz’s discussion PHP & Web Services – A Competitor
– Community Connect’s Dan Cowgill on Understanding and Deploying the
Alternative PHP Cache (APC)
– OmniTi’s George Schlossnagle’s presentations on High Performance PHP
and Unit Testing
– Author/Consultant Sterling Hughes delves into the details of PHP and
XML programming
