IMPORTANT: Recruiters and companies who need to hire: If you are not a developer or do not desire to learn more PHP, joining this group is NOT for you, so you will find it unrewarding and eventually leave. However, we do welcome sponsorships for an opportunity to reach out to members. We ask that you remain professional and not treat this group as a herd to be grazed upon. (No matter how good we taste.) Thank you.
