A few weeks ago already I spend some time in Quebec (that's in Canada) at the fifth conference organized by the PHP User Group there. As usual the conference was great, and the pre-conference skiing trip was even better. I always like going to Montreal, not only because of the cool conference, but also because of all the extra events that are happening there (which mostly involve (too much) alcohol). Some, but not all pictures are here . At the conference I gave a talk on Database Design and a talk on the input filter extension in PHP. You can find the slides for both talks on my talks page.
During the closing keynote session the audience was asking the PHP team / speakers questions, and one of the questions was "When will you stop support for PHP 4?". At that moment we couldn't really give an answer, but now we finally can. Support for PHP 4 will be dropped at the end of the year, 8 months from now. So now is the time to start upgrading all your scripts as we won't be releasing new versions after December 31st, 2007.
