At PHP Quebec in Montreal this week

By , March 12, 2008

I'm in Montreal this week to give a talk at the PHP Quebec conference. So far things seem to be going smoothly, but I'm pretty tired today after the 3 hour time change yesterday on top of the 1 hours DST change on Sunday. My goals for the week are to give my talk on Friday ( of course! ), get a primer on PHP 5.3 ( which is coming up soon ) and try and and chat up Komodo a bit.
