Anyone interested in PHP?

A former member
Post #: 105
There are many things that PHP programmers need to stay on top of their game. This group along with the SEO group well demonstrate that there is nothing equal to a bunch of people coming together face to face to talk a subject.

reasons for a PHP focused effort in Jacksonville:

Increase coding security
Increase coding efficiency
Increase coding skills
Cover current PHP vulnerabilities
Cover updates to PHP which happen about every two months
Support and skills in combining HTML, PHP, Ajax and other technologies.
Various frameworks, CMS, shopping carts and other prefabbed PHP
New technologies and libraries such as Jquery
Various tools available such as editors, version control, etc...
And ETC....

This group does fine for what it does but it has minimal value to a PHP developer's growth and maintenance. No means am I attempting to insult but trying to find a solution for my concern. This group has too broad a member vocation base to be able to focus on hard core PHP coding. I do not call myself a PHP programmer but do use PHP daily in the execution of my job.

Do we need another group or refocus this one? Any suggestions?

YiiS! that is what I am talking about. Lets make it live coding. Just in-case i will have my laptop with WAMPserver and Yii framework installed so we can see it in action!

Lets get together and make Jacksonville PHP programmers come back to life with some help from don of the dead!

Re live coding: We're unfortunately limited by the Library's facilities and network. That's why I'm asking for sponsors­ to offer meeting facilities.

First, at the library we need everything for a live demo to run locally: we can't ssh or putty or even access ports other than 80.

Second, the library's network is only fast enough for simple web pages: another reason Don's last effort re Facebook tragically crashed and burned.

Finally, I reserved Room A in part because it had a projector, but now we've learned that projector was stolen, so we're back to depending on the kindness of members for projector support.

That's why I opted for a basic, web-only presentation this time. We lucked out with the projector in room B, but I wanted to make sure people could follow along on their laptops in a pinch.

Little frustrated:

In this group how many times have we seen <?php in a meeting ?

So many topics that could be covered and we are wanting to redo topics covered less than a year ago!
