Boston PHPers,
December marks our 9 year anniversary, and we are stronger than ever. Since we are all embarking on the Holidays, I just wanted to send you this message as a thank you for making Boston PHP what it is today.

In looking over the year, I feel we have made some great accomplishments. I wanted to highlight a few of these, and take a look at what is in store for next year.

2011

  • We became the worlds largest PHP meetup with over 2,376 members globally.
  • We've had a total of 29 events in 2011 ranging from Core topics, UX, Self studies, and Coffee Club meetups.
  • We grew by 912 new members in 2011 so far.
  • We hit an all time record for our largest meetup event with over 420 attendees.
  • Launched two very popular and successful self-study groups with PHP Percolate and jQuery jAm.
  • Sold over 240 PHP and jQuery books from our own book store
  • We helped hundreds find and recruit for jobs in the Boston area with our Job Fairs.
  • We've served over 750 boxes of free pizza and drinks at our events.
  • We've been able to support all of this without requiring any money from our attendees by relying on our sponsors.

2012

Thank you being a part of our community. It humbles me to think just how far we have come. Wishing you all a warm and safe holiday season - I hope to see you again in 2012.

 

Regards,
