It was a great time at PHP UK Conference 2015, with so many great speakers, starting right at the opening keynote.

I’ve nothing but gratitude to my mate Lorna Jane, who first encouraged me to go about 5 years ago, and to with all the wonderful people I’ve met, speaker and attendee alike.

Before, I was a typical lurker, making so many excuses as to why I had not time, or desire. Now, it’s my yearly trek which I never miss.

But this isn’t a long post, rather quite a short, public, commitment that in the next 12 months, I’m going to be a first time speaker at a PHP conference – somewhere in the world.

The topic? Designing For Performance, inspired by the book of the same name by O’Reilly Press which I bought at the conf this year.

I hope you’ll hold me to it, and thanks to so many for the inspiration and encouragement; especially @e3BethT and @coderabbi.
