September 21st & 22nd 2018 in Dresden, Germany


Please give a big shout-out to all our speakers and trainers who spent a tremendous amount of time and spare no effort to gather and spread their knowledge all around the community, who step up on a stage and share their PHPassion with you.


Once a Web Developer, Jenny now works as a Community Engineer at Human Made. When she started, she spent her first two weeks organizing a conference. She can often be found evangelizing open source community, event organiser and occasionally, speaker.

Her days are varied: From solving issues with event sites & supporting organisers, to passionately cheering people on to contribute back to their communities. She loves cooking up elaborate ideas to help improve participation experiences in open source projects.

When away from the laptop, she’s usually binge watching Formula 1 & anime, doing house renovations or making a mess whilst cooking. You can find her on your messaging service of choice, making plenty of typos.
