PHP Quebec Winds Down

Made it back to Boston on a late flight having had a great time up with the folks at PHP Quebec in Montreal learning about PHP and related technologies. Although there was a lot about PHP specifically, there was also a good deal of conceptual ideas that carry across many languages. Watching Rasmus use callgrind to sort out details of where performance was weak gave me a lot of ideas for my own work.

I had almost no time to get out and see Montreal, just a few quick walks at the lunch breaks. Seems like a great, very international city (almost no English seen or heard on the streets around the hotel). Would love to get up there on a family vacation and have Heidi (who did many years of French in college) to translate.
