Lightning talks on new PHP and an Introduction to WordPress

Hey all!

Sorry for the late(ish) posting but get ready for a fun one!

First, Ian Beals will be up giving a lightning talk about the new features in PHP 5.4 and 5.5. I truly believe this is a huge year for PHP so you definitely don't want to miss this talk!

Then Rafael Corral and I will do a two-man presentation giving you all a developer's introduction to WordPress. We'll talk briefly about all of the fantastic features WordPress has to offer as well as help you understand WordPress themes, plugins and their great API.

See you on Saturday!

    Oh, I worked all day at the Maker's Faire as a volunteer and I forgot all about the meetup. I could have used the break. My loss. Next

      Oh man! Kelly and I were there teaching people to solder all morning! That faire was really awesome.

    'Best Performing Windows Laptop' Is Apple's 13-Inch MacBook Pro: Study

      To be fair, the MacBooks in the study were the only devices running a "clean" install of Windows. That is, the MacBook Pros contained no "crapware" that manufacturers typically install on top of the operating system. Such software can have a huge impact on performance, notes ZDNet, which recently labeled such third-party software a "performance-sappin­g nightmare."

      I think we need to hold a discussion on, "objective" reasoning. /lol/
