Hello Tampa Bay WordPress!
I'm Eli Wheaton, a freelance web developer in the Tampa Bay area. I've created a new Meetup group with the hopes of bringing together PHP developers that are interested in learning and sharing information about the Laravel PHP framework.
I've used other PHP frameworks over the years including, CodeIgniter, CakePHP, and Kohana, but I honestly think that Laravel is a far superior option.
The Tampa Bay Laravel group is open to anyone, not just developers, that are interested in building powerful and manageable web applications with PHP.
We have a meetup THIS THURSDAY at:
3104 North Armenia Ave Suite 2
Tampa, Florida 33607
PS - I still love & use WordPress all the time, Laravel isn't a replacement for WP!
