Probably should have lumped this in with my last post, but it’s a rare convenience that related thoughts like these all occur to me at the same time. Another event related to the php|tek 2009 conference coming up in May is a free webcast series for which I have been invited to present.
Webcasts will be held roughly every two weeks leading up to the beginning of the conference. I’m scheduled for Friday February 27 at 1 PM EST and my topic will be "When RSS Fails: Web Scraping with HTTP." Participation is free, but the number of participants is limited, so register early. Note that participation requires a machine running either Windows XP or higher or MacOS X 10.4 or higher. Look forward to seeing you there!
