Talk Ideas

Longhorn PHP Conference is not limited to just PHP-related talks. There have been sessions covering a wide range of topics supporting PHP Developers, Front-End Developers, DevOps Teams and Leadership as well. We encourage you to "think outside the box" to come up with your own unique topics.

We strongly advise that you submit a few talk ideas, not just one. By submitting a single talk you may lessen your chances of being selected.

To get the ideas flowing, here's a few suggestions:

  • Virtualization and environments, Docker, Serverless
  • PHP internals
  • Development principles, code quality
  • Building APIs (REST, SOAP)
  • Continuous Integration and Delivery
  • JavaScript
  • Databases
  • Security
  • Mobile-first design, Responsive Design, CSS
  • User Experience (UI/UX), Usability, Accessibility
  • Testing
  • Frameworks (Laravel, Symfony, Wordpress, and more)
  • Professional development and skills

Session Types

This year, we'll be accepting talks for two session lengths: 3 hour tutorials, and ~50 minute talks.

Tutorial - These are interactive hands-on workshops, meant for diving into a topic.

Talks - This is a standard presentation time slot; your presentation should run around 50 minutes, including time for questions should you choose to take them from on stage. If you would like to submit a keynote idea, use this talk type, though keynote time slots will be somewhat shorter.
