Last month we had a good turnout to our first joint meetup, Introduction to Laravel, covering the frameworks structure, components, and usage. This month we will be discussing PHP Basic Concepts, reviewing the essential pieces for a better understanding of PHP development. Time permitting, we will finish up with Classes, Objects, and usage of some of the built-in SPL (Standard PHP Library) classes.
There seems to be large percentage of members who are relatively new to PHP and programming in general. In an effort to create level playing ground for us all, we will formalize the concepts to get started. In this series we will be covering a rudimentary understanding of what a PHP program is, how it works, and what basic pieces are used.
The PHP community has been growing strongly for years and picking up speed as it moves. As a low-entry, robust, and expandable interpretative language, it's generated a significant percentage of the internet as we know it. Expanding our skill and tool set is important in our growth with PHP. The Corner Workbench is a forum to learn about PHP, tools, utilities, packages, libraries, frameworks, and a lot more. As we move forward we'll uncover principles of PHP, programming, development, and design. Each new bit of information helps us to become stronger in our talents.
Our meeting space is being provided by Tampa Hackerspace, a member based cooperative makerspace; make sure to thank them.
We have a discussion board for The Corner Workbench.
