So, next week I'm going to PHP[TEK] 2018. I've only been to one tech(nical) conference before, and I want to make the most out of this opportunity.
Last November I went to Nodevember, and I really enjoyed it. However, I do think that I tried to be at everything that I possibly could, and I was so exhausted because of it. Is it just best to be tired, and try to make absolutely every event? Do I need to just drink more coffee? You tell me.
I would love if some interviewed people at conferences and asked them about their experience and what they generally like/dislike. I've thought about trying to do this myself, but I also don't want to make every conversation I have an interview.
Anyways, I know very little about PHP, but I'm beyond thrilled to go to this conference. I'll be attending every day of it, from Tuesday - Friday. I also snagged a ticket to the Grumpy Programmer's Guide to Unit Testing training day, which is on Tuesday.
So, what do y'all think? What makes a good conference experience? If I were to try to interview people, what should I ask them? I would totally read up on attendees expereinces of conferences and general opinion.
