Upcoming travels

In the last few days, I’ve received my itineraries for travels in May, and it’s suddenly seeming very close.

The last week of April I’ll be leaving for Apachecon in Amsterdam. I’m still frantically trying to get my tutorial notes done so that I can have them in by the deadline on Friday. I was dumb enough to submit a brand new tutorial for this ApacheCon, after giving the same tutorial every ApacheCon since 2000 in Orlando (with one exception – I was just so sick of it that I didn’t do it in Austin.) and now I have to actually prepare it. Just an enormous amount of time involved in putting together a half-day tutorial.

Two weeks after that, I’ll be speaking at PHP|Tek in Chicago – one of the few places in the world that I can fly to without changing planes. I’ve never been to a PHP conference before, and it’s a great honor to be asked. I’ll be giving my “intro to mod_rewrite” talk, and then I’ll get to hang out with all those cool PHP people for a few days. I’m really looking forward to that.

So, if you’re going to be in either Amsterdam or Chicago in May, do drop by and see me. And if you’re not, well, you should make plans to be. They’ll both be great conferences, and there will be interesting people there.
