Amsterdam PHP meetup

Every last Thursday of every month, Amsterdam-PHP hosts a meet-up with the intention of connecting minds in the tech ecosystem and providing the latest information on PHP. Each meetup is hosted by a different company; this edition will be held by TQ's very own, Scribbr, and will focus on a less technical yet equally important subject: leading development teams. Topics of discussion will include process management, recruiting, motivating and developing people and how to actually get something useful out of these dreaded 'performance reviews' you might be asked to do.

  • 19:30 - 20:30 - Talk

He started programming with PHP in the early PHP 4 days and has over 15 years of experience with the language. Having worked on big home grown legacy applications and with new 'modern' projects he is interested in keeping code maintainable so that it can be adapted fast and easily to new requirements in growing organizations.
