Show 'n Tell & Code as Well

You won't want to miss this event. This is a great chance to see and share all the cool things your fellow members are doing with open source technology.

Now that the Bruins have advanced to the second round, and have stepped out in front of the Rangers, Boston PHP would like to celebrate with an evening of coding fun.  Bring your laptop and bring a project you are working on.  We'll provide the concessions.

Show 'n Tell

Here is your chance to step up to the podium and show your fellow members the cool things you've been working on. The structure is informal and all are welcome to present. If you prefer to be in the audience to watch and learn, that is fine too. Our show and tell events have been some of our most interesting Boston PHP events. It is amazing to see all the things our members are doing with open source technology. If you would like to show your project to a small group of people and garner fan support or coding help, simply call a time out, grab your laptop and migrate to a breakout room or the lounge area for a team huddle and instant replay.

Code as Well
If, on the other hand, you would like to work on a personal project, by yourself or with the help of potential coaches and teammates, then simply stay in the glass-enclosed playing field and code until you score a goal.

Players of all abilities are welcome: rookies, veterans and superstars.

There will be no official presentation at this event. This meetup will be what you make it.

Agenda:

6PM - (Free) Pizza arrives

6-9PM Ideas fly, connections are made, knowledge is shared, learning abounds

9PM Beers at Champions Bar??

    I just wanted to say that it was great to meet & chat with all of you smart folks. There is a reason why I love Boston PHP...I get to meet & talk to you awesome people.

    I could talk about personal project and/or a php dependency manger i've started to use called Composer.

      Thanks for going first. Long ago when I was first learning PHP, I tried to use PEAR and thought it was too complex for me. So I wrote all my own stuff (a good thing sometimes). The amount of stuff one must go through and understand to get it all working before you can try it out is just crazy. Lucky if you find installlation code for for dummies. What you showed us I hope can renew some hope for these great code budles. If you've ever had to install modules or bundles into your code manually by adding this file here and edit that file there... Well, then you know how a package manager and composer may save your sanity.

      Thanks a lot for talking about Composer and introducing it to everyone. We needed that. [:)].

      Why not join the Reverse Startup and we can improve your pitch?

      I totally don't mind joining !! Improvement comes with a learning curve and I consider myself a learner for life..so count me in.

    Had a great time. There's some really cool stuff going on out there, and this was a good chance to see some of it. I did get to talk a little about e107 and share my excitement about it, and I heard about some really exciting things that I want to play with, but I think the most enjoyable thing about the meetup was that I could talk about something that I'm passionate about (web development and tech) and the people I'm talking to don't just have a polite smile and nod their head while their eyes glaze over lol

    I wasn't able to grab all of the contact info that I would have liked to, so if you want to talk shop, or are in need of help or another php devs opinion, hit me up @ [masked]

      That's the great thing about Github and pull requests: send a request, and if it's not the solution they are looking for they will give great feedback on how to improve it without interfering with the core code base. So code away and go nuts, you aren't going to break anything. And that goes for any OSS project. Get your hands dirty and make it better than it was yesterday :-)

      And I'm not getting paid to say any of this, or to help out. No one is encouraging me to shout out about e107. This comes from me and my excitement about it and it's potential, and is 100% personal. I guess it also comes from my conviction that any success of a piece of software, be it closed or open source, comes from it's community. It could be a master piece and perfectly executed, but if there's no community surrounding it, supporting it or making suggestions and helping out other users, then it dies. Doesn't matter how much money is backing it. That's my opinion at least :-p

    I would love to show everyone how the Northeast PHP conference management system and website work. It was written for NEPHP as well as orher conferences. It is an open source project created by Andrew Curioso and Myself. It's pretty slick, so of love to show it off.

    I will likely talk briefly about Rasberry Pi and Arduino. Two technologies I am just starting to play with.

      I can bring my RPi for demo purposes if you want.

    Has anyone heard of e107? It's a great CMS that I've fallen in love with for the second time in the past 7 years. They've recently released a v2 alpha and I'm excited about it. Does anyone mind if I say a few words about it?

      Would love to hear more about this CMS.

      Great, I'm looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to seeing what other people are up to. It's been a while since I've been able to get to the meetup, can't wait!
