November 17th - 18th

workshops: November 16th

Villa Verde Congress & Spa Hotel, Zawiercie, Poland

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.

Practical knowledge awaits you on Thursday. The workshops will last until the evening, and the lectures will only start on Friday morning.

Full board package

Breakfast is included in the price of accommodation. Lunch and dinner are included in the entrance fee.
For workshop attendees - starting with Thursday lunch, for others - starting with Friday lunch.

Networking

We bring together people at different stages of their careers - from budding programmers to long-standing professionals in various positions - all of who PHP turns on.

Integration

This year, a concert by the band Kołdra, which surely you will enjoy, as it is, after all, music about ourselves... Plus, as usual, a bowling alley and a flood of craft beer from the Yan Brewery.

Venue

Hotel Villa Verde Congress & SPA ****

It's a modern complex that balances the concept of a hotel ideal for business and family leisure. The perfect location of the facility, in the heart of the Krakow-Czestochowa Upland, far from the hustle and bustle of large agglomerations, guarantees high comfort of rest and creates excellent conditions for regaining strength.

The facility has 166 comprehensively equipped rooms, making a total of 450 beds. The whole is arranged primarily with a view to convenience and functionality.

Hotel Villa Verde is a complex with the largest conference and banquet facilities in Upland. It features multifunctional rooms with the possibility of dynamic division according to guests' requirements. A total of 1 200 sqm of conference space with a capacity for 500 participants.

The hotel, one of the few in Poland, can boast its own brewery giving craft beer lovers the highest level of satisfaction.

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 rozklad.pkp.pl.
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).
Self-drive
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.
Aircraft
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.

Hotel Zawiercie**** Business & Leisure is a high-standard corporate and training centre, which is located in Zawiercie, on the Jurassic Rocks Region (Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska) near the international airport Pyrzowice (KTW).
The object is located closer to the town centre than the Villa Verde. The approximate distance between them is 3 miles.
The number of available places is also limited and decreases with time, so postponing a booking at the last minute is not a good idea.
