DPC CodeNight


This year DPC and AmsterdamPHP will join force again to host a very special event during the conference: The CodeNight.

On Thursday (Tutorial day), after you are done visiting the tutorials, we invite you in Grand CafĂ© at the RAI and join us. Come join a night of fun, coding and interacting: this is not just a hackathon, its a space to come contribute to open source projects, debate and create new project but also interact, learn and get to know developers all around you.

Food and drinks will be provided, so you do not have to hunt down your own plate of food in the wild Amsterdam nights. We do recommend you bring your laptop and bring your will to create and contribute.


For the CodeNight we invite open source project maintainers to sit down and work on their project. People who want to participate in an open source project can help discuss new features, write some code, tests or documentation.

The CodeNight is a community event. It's a co-production of AmsterdamPHP and DPC. This means the doors are open for anybody who's interested!


The CodeNight will take place on June 29th in the Grand Cafe, RAI Amsterdam. The evening starts at 18:00 and there will be food and drinks for you.


  • If you are going to DPC, make sure you select "CodeNight" on the order form.
  • If you have bought your ticket already but forgot to sign up for the CodeNight, please send an email to [email protected].
  • If you don't go to DPC, then you need to sign up on AmsterdamPHP's meetup page.


If you work on open source software and would like to participate as such: let us know! Please fill in this form.

We hope you are as excited as our combined team is to get this party started.

Projectname: Doctrine ORM 2
Description: Doctrine ORM is an object relational mapper for PHP that sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL. This provides developers with a powerful alternative to SQL that maintains flexibility without requiring unnecessary code duplication.
Things to work on: We're getting closer to the release of version 2.6.0 of the ORM and in order to achieve that we need some help with reviewing, testing and implementing some items (https://github.com/doctrine/doctrine2/projects/2).
