Due to disorganization on my part, I accidentally booked php[world] 2019 to coincide with a family commitment.
After reviewing a variety of options, I let the organizers know last week that I could no longer attend. It's a situation I hate, because there's nobody to blame but me, and no matter what option I could come up with, somebody would end up disappointed or inconvenienced. For my part, my family had to come first.
Fortunately, the organizers at php[world] were able to convince Ryan Weaver to fill in for me on the PHP and Frameworks panel, and to deliver a talk to replace my slot in the program. I'm happy that he was able to step in!
I hope everyone attending the conference has a great experience! Next time, I'll plan better!
