It's no secret that I like the PHPNorthWest Conference. It's no secret that I think it is the best PHP conference in the world. If you have some kind of opportunity to make it to Manchester for PHPNW, you should. I'm not joking. You should. As always, I submitted some talks and I'm happy to be accepted again. Being accepted as a speaker also allows me to help someone else go to PHPNW.

As I've found out after starting my own company, training is a hot topic. On the one hand, everyone wants and needs training, but on the other hand, training seems to be really expensive. And while in-depth expert training has a good value (and I deliver those on a regular basis), I felt there should be a way for web developers to stay up-to-date on recent developments in a quick and not too expensive way. Talking with friend, old colleague and soon-to-be freelancer Joshua Thijssen I found someone who felt the same way. This is what lay at the root of a new training concept we have just launched: Techademy.

In January I announced that I had become a Sensio training partner. So far, I had not scheduled any training sessions though. With Symfony2 nearing completion though, it's time to change that, and I've finally scheduled my first training session on Symfony2.

For some time now I've been working on a partnership, and it is with great pride and happiness that I can now officially announce it: My company Ingewikkeld is now an official Sensio trainingpartner for Benelux and Germany. This means that as of January 1st, I am now able to officially offer all Sensio courses in these countries.

Time for a new adventure. Last monday, my wife Marjolein and I visited the local Chamber of Commerce to register our new company: Ingewikkeld. We're both doing completely different things, but we've decided to capture both into a single company because it saves us a shitload of administrative work, and since we're married anyway, it doesn't really matter. I (could you have expected something else?) will be offering (PHP) development, consultancy and training services, and my wife will be a baby wearing consultant.
