Why does GitHub support our community?

The PHPBenelux conference is one of the biggest and well organized PHP conferences in the world. The fact that it’s put on by a community of passionate PHP programmers really speaks to the level of dedication they have to keeping the PHP language exciting and vibrant. We are thrilled to help them keep this initiative going, and to support their efforts any way that we can.
