PHP and Web Services

I’ve been kindly invited by Prof.Carlos Costa to present a workshop at the CITOT 2007 conference. The conference has just finished and I’m sharing my presentation slides right here. You can also download the full presentation (PDF format, 1.5MB).

I also had a great time during the coffee breaks talking about different subjects, from Open Source to Web Art. I hope more conferences like this take place in Portugal because it’s a fantastic way to share opinions and, who knows, start new projects.

London Hack Day

Yahoo! and BBCBackstage are organizing London Hack Day. The event will take place in London, at the Alexandra Palace, on the weekend of June 16th and 17th. More than 400 developers are being invited to participate in this amazing hacking party. Hack Day can best be described as (quoting Wikipedia)

(…) an open participatory hacking session where attendees were encouraged to create web applications that utilized one or more of Yahoo’s APIs and open source libraries.

Hack Day: London, June 16/17 2007

The weekend will begin with a series of talks from Yahoo! people where they will present their APIs and what you can with them. These talks should give you enough information for you to start hacking right away.I believe it’s going to be a great event with lots of developers from all around Europe. You’ll be able to exchange ideas and thoughts and get to know other people.

I’ll be traveling from Portugal on the 15th, and I’ll be leaving London on the 18th. If you’re also attending and want to meet before the event, say something. I’m looking forward to talking over a beer somewhere in London.

Update: an unofficial Wiki has just been setup.
