At Bsides London I was part of the rookie track which meant I got an excellent mentor in the shape of Yiannis Chrysanthou. It also meant I only had 15 minutes to cram something interesting into which was good as it made me concentrate on the important parts
The Dutch PHP Conference or DPC is a conference I have attended twice before. This year there was no way I could go not as a speaker as they covered travel and accommodation as well as entry to the conference. It was again an excellent conference with great organisation and venue.
