Sunshine PHP 2017

Posted on Posted in PHP

I had a fantastic time as I always do at Sunshine PHP 2017 down in Miami this year. I chose this conference because there were several speakers that I had heard about that I wanted to hear and they did not disappoint. And let’s be honest, the other big reason is to get down to […]
