Yesterday, @phpsw tweeted:
also, still looking for people to speak about testing/CI in July/August, if anyone wants to volunteer before we start searching/goading :)
I, sort of jokingly, responded with:
@phpsw if someone can give me a good reason to travel there I could ;)
I say "sort of jokingly" because:
- I'd love to speak on the topic
- I'd love to visit a usergroup I've never been to
- I realize just travelling to the UK for a usergroup is expensive and a lot of effort
The discussion went on a bit more and Phil Sturgeon entered the discussion, inviting me for cider and noting we hadn't met in way too long. I agree, and I've not really tasted many ciders yet, so an expert on cider could definitely teach me a thing or two. So I asked him:
Nobody in your region in need of a 1-day consulting?
This prompted Phil to tweet out a call to anyone that may need something:
Dear the West Country: Who would like @skoop to come to their office and do some PHP/Symfony consulting on July 1st/2nd? @phpsw #php
This started out as a joke, but I seriously want to go and travel to speak at the phpsw usergroup. So here goes nothing:
GET ME OVERTHERE! SPECIAL PRICE, JUST FOR YOU
I'm offering a discounted price for the company that flies me out for a single day of consulting or training. I'll happily brainstorm about your application, help you fix issues with your PHP application, give some training on PHP-related topics, review or audit your code, or just hang out at your office. My normal single day rate is ~1000 euro, but the company that agrees to fly me over to speak at phpsw will get a 50% discount. I will work for you for the day for 500 euro + whatever the cost of the flight is. Let's make this work! Interested? Tweet @skoop and @phpsw, or e-mail me: email@example.com.
