I recently returned from the PHP Quebec Conference where I gave a presentation on the Service Component Architecture (SCA). The slides can be found here. We've been making quite a bit of progress in adding protocol support so I was able to demonstrate bindings for json-rpc, soap/http, rest-rpc and xml-rpc, all of which are available now. Because the conference sessions are 75 minutes long, I was also able to slip in a couple of demos of prototypes for Atom and RSS syndication as well as a custom binding for the eBay soap API.
This was the second PHP Quebec conference I have attended, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The folks of the PHP Quebec Association do an excellent job, filling three days with some great material from the likes of Rasmus Lerdorf, Chris Shiflett, Ilia Alshanetsky, Rob Richards, John Coggeshall, Marcus Börger, and many more. They also lay on some great entertainment in the evenings. Check out the photo Cal put up on DevZone and you'll get an idea of what I mean :-) .
