Cascadia PHP’s focus is to foster community. We want you & every other participant at our conference to feel included & welcomed.

We are all developers ourselves & are committed to creating an environment that is friendly, encouraging & helpful to you.

Special events like these often create lifelong memories and – better yet – friendships.

sharpen skills

Technology moves fast these days and it can be a struggle to keep up. We work hard keep our community up to date and well informed by bringing industry leading experts to our stomping grounds.

We don't only touch on PHP topics, we also cover important things like Mental Health, the latest JavaScript and CSS techniques, soft skills, and more.

explore portland

Cascadia PHP's venue is situated right on the MAX light-rail line, so traveling anywhere across the city is a breeze.

Portland was founded in 1845 and features a rich western history that leaves a lot to explore. If that's not your thing, explore the food cart scene, the craft beer selection, and the amazing cocktails across the city.

Cascadia PHP's board of directors originally planned to take over the PNWPHP conference, but time constraints and a desire to keep the Seattle PHP user group intact led us to pursue a new Non-Profit and a totally new conference instead.

Our board contains Contractors, Consultants, Business Owners, Educators, PHP-FIG Committee Members, and over 90 years of cumulative experience using PHP.
