This talk will argue that PHP's bad reputation is a thing of the past and look at where and how PHP is used in the wild. We will describe some really useful tools and libraries which people can take away and play with. We will touch on the jobs market for PHP, agency working and how to get involved. We will finally talk about the huge community for PHP around the world but also specifically in Manchester.
