Open Talk & What's new and exciting in PHP 5.3

First part: Open Talk After the great response we had to last meetup's open talk, we're going to do it one more time. This time it's on a Monday - so we're hoping to have even more of a crowd. Aaron will facilitate introductions and the floor will be open to most dicussions. Last meetup we spoke about what was most challening, where each member was in their PHP knowledge, what was some new exciting projects they were working on and more. Second part: Joel Clermont presents Title: What's new and exciting in PHP 5.3? Overview: PHP 5.3 is over a year old, yet many developers have been slow in moving to it. What are they missing out on? This talk will take a deep dive into three new features of 5.3 and show interesting use cases for each. The first topic will group together three very similar and overlapping features: lambdas, anonymous functions and closures. The second feature we will discuss is namespaces, a topic of heated debated prior to 5.3's release. The final topic of discussion will be late static binding. 6:00p.m. Bucketworks - remember - new schedule - SECOND MONDAY AND FORTH TUESDAY

    Great to meet new people and begin to learn more about PHP. It was a bit over my head right now, but a good presentation by Joel. Look forward to attending again.

    Enjoyed seeing a bunch of new faces. Once again, I wish attendance was higher but apparently some people watch football or have lives outside of PHP.

    I heard Joel is going to blow the minds of even the geekiest geeks tomorrow in tomorrow's Advanced portion of the presentation.

    We should have the meetup at a sports bar so we can watch the Vikings lose tomorrow.

    Unfortunately, it's often a negative impact, because I'll forget which language I'm working in and try to do something, and PHP's quirks get in my way.

    I have been known to use a LOT of french when working on some projects, yes... :-D

    I know English and a little Spanish, French, and Chinese... does that count?

    One question I'd like to hear people discuss: What languages do you use/know other than PHP and how do they complement your PHP development?
