About DPC

Dutch PHP Conference

The Dutch PHP Conference is an annual web technology conference around PHP technology.

For the 2018 edition (our 12th edition!), we’ve invited more than 50 speakers from all around the world to share their expertise and experience with the 600+ attendees in a 3-day conference in the RAI, Amsterdam. The next edition is on June 6, 7 and 8, 2019!

The conference is completely in English and is focused on mobile- and web development related to PHP technology.

Target audience

The Dutch PHP Conference audience is aimed at mobile web and PHP developers at every experience level. Experienced developers will learn how to expand their current development skills as well as take away new insight in the latest modern web technologies. Junior developers will learn techniques to expand their knowledge and grow their skill set faster. DPC has an established reputation as the best place to expand a developer’s skill set and improve existing practice.

Ibuildings organizes this yearly conference with the goal to enable the PHP community to share insights, expertise and experiences in an open and inclusive environment.


The DPC19 venue is, like last year, the Amsterdam RAI in Amsterdam.

Sponsorship opportunities

Sponsoring the Dutch PHP Conference means over 600 web developers in one place with the possibility to engage them personally. Last year we had over 600 attendees at DPC, and the feedback provided shows that again we have delivered a high quality conference which will draw even more developers in this year.

Although we have the standard sponsor packages for sponsors that just want to support the Dutch PHP Conference, we try to tailor the sponsoring agreements to the needs of the sponsor. We understand that sponsors want a solid return on investment and we will work towards facilitating that as much as possible. If you are interested in sponsoring, please visit the  sponsoring page.

The DPC scholarship fund

The DPC scholarship fund is sponsoring tickets for the DPC conference to members of underrepresented groups with the purpose of encouraging them to join this tech community. 

If you wish to apply for the scholarship, please have a look on the DPC Scholarship Fund page.

Code of Conduct

We think it’s incredibly important to offer an inclusive and safe environment for everybody at our conference. We’ve created a Code of Conduct to explain what we expect from each and every one of our attendees, speakers and staff.
