Meet & Greet

PHP is a powerhouse in the programming world and so is its community.  As members of its ever growing support system and a community of PHP enthusiasts, our goals of spreading the joy of PHP and helping our fellow PHPers starts with each other.  Meet & Greet is a way of introducing ourselves to each other, asking questions big and small, getting feedback, and discussing future directions.

Make sure to appreciate our hosts and buy a drink or something to eat.

We have a discussion board for Meet & Greet.

    I'm considering learning to code, and I'm looking to evaluate if it's feasible to learn at this point in my life, how to get started, advise, and listen to others who are already made it a career.
