About the conference

PHPCon Poland is the oldest and unique conference in Poland, aimed at PHP developers and enthusiasts. We have been on the Polish market since 2010. During this time, we have contributed to educating of a new generation of PHP developers!

This is an event where you will make new contacts and exchange experiences and ideas for the near future. But not only! It's a conference you'll love coming back to, both for the atmosphere and the new contacts, but also for your own development - as a listener, as a speaker, or maybe as a recruiter looking for new talent. Who knows?

This year, PHPCon Poland will again take place at the Villa Verde Hotel in Zawiercie, in the heart of the Jura Uplands. Last season, you liked the venue. It received many positive feedback and comments, so that we will follow suit.

We hope that we have said goodbye to the Covid pandemic for good, so we are returning to the international character of our event this year. We are allowing presentations in both Polish and English again.

Jura is not only the region of Switzerland. We also have Jura in Poland, much more beautiful and with many limestone rocks and medevial castles! PHPCon Poland 2023 is an excellent opportunity to make the most of the weekend and see how interesting Polish Jura is and how much it offers, especially in autumn.

Public transport
Zawiercie is very well connected to the rest of the country thanks to the Central Railway Main Line (pol.: Centralna Magistrala Kolejowa, in short: CMK), which starts here and directly connects Katowice and Warsaw. From Katowice, there are an average of two trains per hour leaving for Zawiercie at the peak of the day (journey time: approx. 45 minutes), and from Warsaw, an average of one (journey time: approx. 2 hours). A detailed timetable is available at
The venue can be reached by ZKM Zawiercie city bus line no. 3 and 9 (stop: Marciszowska), or 12 (stop: Inwestycyjna). You can also walk to the hotel from the Zawiercie Borowe Pole railway stop (only a few steps).
If you are coming from the north, south, west, or southeast, drive to Siewierz along national highway no. 91 and then through Poręba to Zawiercie along road no. 78. Take the third exit (left, direction Myszków) at the roundabout near McDonald's restaurant.
The exception is in the northeastern direction (Kielce, Radom, Lublin, Białystok) because then you will probably reach Zawiercie from the other side, and you will have to drive through the town. Then at the roundabout near McDonald's, we take the first exit (right, direction Myszków).
Continue along Inwestycyjna St. approx 3 km to the next roundabout with Mrzygłodzka St.
The hotel is located at the roundabout on the left-hand side.
In doubt, the closest airport to Zawiercie is Katowice/Pyrzowice (KTW). However, to go to Zawiercie by public transport, you will probably have to reach the Katowice city center first (over 30 km - Zawiercie is closer). In such a situation, a taxi may be a sensible solution - the airport and the hotel are only 28 km apart, resulting in a transport cost of EUR 25-30.
