    My first time at MKEPUG! I met some interesting people and had some good conversation. The talk was entertaining. I'm definitely coming again.

    I had a great time! Everyone was friendly and willing to speak with me. I didn't get to speak with everyone and that's why I will be back for more. There were all different skill levels there and someone with questions on a certain topic would be sure to be able to get them answered or pointed in the right direction. Glad that I went and I will be back.

    It was great to see a lot of new faces. Proof that our group's growth will continue in 2011. It was also nice to reflect on what we did last year and discuss what we want to do and how we can improve this year. I took a lot of notes and will be working to implement the ideas.

    Pete's presentation was definitely one to remember. I think talks like his are every bit as important as ones where we discuss programming details or code. We need inspirational and motivational topics as well, especially for those newer to programming, so they don't worry too much about being criticized or not doing it according to "best practices." Pete made a great case for jumping in and exploring an idea. Good advice for all.

    My only regret was not moving quickly enough to get a sub before they were all gone.

    Solid overview of what is up and coming for PHP. Very impressive knowledge base without the stuffiness you find at other user groups. Pete was hilarious. Looking forward to next months meeting. Thanks for exposing me to some dynamic concepts in Web Development.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
