The Northeast PHP Conference is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the developer community. While grounded in PHP, the conference is not just about PHP. Talks on web technology, user experience, and IT management help PHP developers broaden their skill sets. We are entirely non-profit. Our organizers and and speakers volunteer their time to create a community event experience on par with the big technology conferences. We value the participation of each member of the PHP community, so follow @NEPHP on Twitter for updates and don’t miss out!

Learning Machine Learning
From chatbots to your home thermostat, it seems like machine learning algorithms are everywhere nowadays. How about understanding how this works now? In this talk, you will learn about the basics of machine learning through various basic examples, without the need for a PhD or deep knowledge of assembly. At the end of this talk, you will know what the Naive Bayes classifiers, sentiment analysis and basic genetic algorithms are and how they work. You will also see how to create your own implementations.

Leveraging a Distributed Architecture to Your Advantage
The days of a "simple" LAMP stack are behind us. We now rely on different types of technologies, applications and services to run our web based applications. With "the cloud" we have learned how to distribute our operations, but are we resilient when these cloud services are not available? 
We have all heard about the major outages of Amazon and Azure in the past and many online services were impacted by those outages. So how can you protect yourself against being "offline" for hours or days and what are the tools you can use to protect yourself against it? 
Learn how we protect our customers with distributed systems (cloud and on-prem) to mitigate outages and stay online even when the lights go out.
