Boston PHP is the largest education-focused Meetup in New England.

We are a lot more than PHP!

We have been meeting since 2002. We have more than 3,600 members, and usually meet every month on a Wednesday. We have a wide range of topics all related to PHP, Web Development, and Open Source technology.

All meetings are free, and we encourage everyone to participate and get involved and help grow the PHP community. After each meeting we typically go to a nearby restaurant/bar/pub for more informal discussion.

Our 99 Percent Solution strategy offers services beyond monthly meetups.  For example, we have developed four virtual self-study groups that are run year-round: PHP Percolate!, jQuery jAM, HTML5 Brunch and Drupal Diner.  More than 175 members have been enshrined on our Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment.

In addition, more than 100 members receive job postings from other members via our Boston PHP Job Board (beta).

We video all of our meetups. To access our videos, just  follow this link.

Topics we cover:

We base all our meetings from attendee suggestions. If you have an idea for a topic that you would like to see (or present), please use our ideas section.

Calling all presenters:

We want to have a mix of events from beginner and advanced topics. We are looking for presenters for each of these topics. If you (or someone you know) are experienced in a topic and have some presentation skills - then please let us know. We are also looking for volunteers to help us with planning, logistics, and other odd jobs.
