As you might know, the PHPBenelux Conference 2011 is right around the corner. Happy to inform you that not only will I attend, but also will be speaking at this event. My talk will be about the awesome things you can do with Sed & Awk. Not necessarily a talk you would expect on a PHP congress, but on the other hand, maybe it’s just precisely a talk you might expect. Not only will I talk about WHAT you can do with sed & awk, but also why and when you should - or shouldn’t - use it. It will be a fast-paced, information-loaded, things-you-probably-never-knew talk so make sure you keep your seat-belts on and remain seated until the vehicle has come to a complete stop.

Conferences like these are an awesome way to gain knowledge about everything related to PHP, web development and above. Even though my personal interests lies with web-development in general, I really like to show other developers the broader perspective in which you are just a small part:  your application runs on a database which needs to be setup and maintained, you run on an infrastructure that needs to be setup and maintained, you might talk with 3rd party applications and so on… I hope to see you around during my session and try to discover some sweet tools that, even if you not going to use them on daily basis, at least you know they’re there, ready to do all your complex stuff developers always like to automate…
