Ticket Information

php[tek] is divided in two sub-events:

  • Tutorial day on May 14th
  • Main conference May 15th through May 17th

Access to the tutorial day requires a Full Experience Ticket. All tickets include:

  • Access to the conference events
  • Access to all social/networking events
  • Lunch (May 15th and 16th, 14th as applicable)

Important: conference tickets are subject to availability—our conference often sells out early, so we recommend securing your seat as early on as possible.
