The after party is just as important as all of the sessions at a conference. The after party provides a venue to meet, interact, and befriend other developers. Lone Star PHP always strives to provide the most inclusive and exciting after parties! Each night you can expect to see a couple of corn hole boards, tons of board games, and a kinect running on the big projector. There is no need to run off after the keynote, we provide food and beverages for everyone. No matter what your drink preference, we have you covered! Drinks provided are Beer (New Republic Brewing), mixed drinks, wine, Mexican Cokes (made with real sugar), "Dublin" Dr. Peppers (made with real sugar), assorted lemonades, water, etc.
The newly-formed podcast, Loosely Coupled, will be recording live at Lone Star PHP 2014! Come join Jeff Carouth and Matt Frost as they discuss attending, speaking at, and benefiting from conferences; the problems of a software developer; and other community-oriented topics. This is your chance to not only hear the conversation as it happens, but also to influence the discussion with your questions and comments.
One of the goals for Lone Star PHP is to always bring more people into the Open Source Community. This year, we will have a room setup to help get everyone some Open Source Softward. Whether you're creating a bug ticket, writing documentation, and/or committing code; that is a contribution! Every person who enters the OSS Room will receive a raffle ticket for a Raspberry Pi. The winners of the raffle will be announced at 9pm CST in the main ballroom (Sycamore).
In 2014, Lone Star PHP looks to continue its great success. If you would like to be a part of making 2014 the best event yet, review the sponsor prospectus.
