Greetings from Zend's PHP Community Relations Manager

Hello there!  I wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Eli 
White, and I'm the PHP Community Relations Manager for Zend 
Technologies.  I wanted to reach out for three reasons really.  
First of all, just as being the new community manager for Zend 
(I just started this year), I wanted to say 'Hello', let you 
know who I am (http://eliw.com/­), and let you know that if you, 
or your user group, needs anything from Zend, or has any 
questions for Zend, to feel free to contact me.

Secondly, I did want to make sure that your group was aware of 
the details for ZendCon 2009.  ZendCon, as you hopefully know, 
is the biggest PHP conference each year, and the 2009 edition 
is less than 2 months away.  In fact, the Early Registration 
deadline is tomorrow!  Friday 8/28/09.   It is being held this 
year in San Jose, California, from October 19th-22nd.  My 
apologies for not sending this message earlier, I've been so 
busy helping planning the conference, that reaching out to the 
user groups to let them know about it fell over my radar.

Which brings me to my third point.  I wanted to let you know 
that Zend really does feel that community is one of the most 
important things that keeps driving PHP as a (ok, THE) leading 
web language, and we really want to support the community out 
there.  (Heck, it's why they feel it's important enough to pay 
my salary to be the liaison to the community)

To that end, I'd like to offer your user group a 5% discount 
code for ZendCon, if your members would be interested in 
attending and want to use it.   The code is YDSK9 - and you can 
enter it when registering at http://zendcon.co...­

You can only use one discount, and the Student or ZCE discounts 
are actually bigger, so if your members qualify for one of 
those, they should use them instead.  But this community 
discount is at least a little something to help you guys out.  
Please pass on the discount code to your user group, or forward 
this email as a whole.

I hope to see as many people as possible there at ZendCon this 
year!

Thanks,
Eli
