Microsoft New England Research  Development Center

This year's Northeast PHP Conference will be held again at the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center, affectionately referred to as the NERD. We're excited to be holding the event here again having been voted the number one event for 2012 at the NERD. The NERD is a fabulous event venue and the best part is that Microsoft makes the space available to us for free! This has helped us to keep the ticket prices affordable.

Located in Kendall Square, the NERD is a catalyst for innovation throughout the region. The NERD has done a tremendous job of supporting the local technology community. Last year alone the NERD hosted over 700 events including Boston PHP meetups. Some upcoming events at the NERD include:

  • Boston I/O (9/7/2013): Boston I/O is a free 1-day conference for approximately 300 high school and college students. Boston I/O helps transition students from school to the local startup culture by offering hard skills as well as solid, specific advice for emerging tech entreprenuers and technologists.
  • HACKFit Boston 2013 (9/20/2013 - 9/22/2013): HACKFit events are weekend-long competitions designed by technologists and fitness gurus to test your all-around hacking skills, true grit, and camaraderie.
  • zCon East (10/21/2013 - 10/22/2013): The zSpace Developers Conference is an educational environment that stimulates communication and collaboration among developers of 3D applications, hardware and content who are interested in immersive, lifelike and interactive technologies.
