Boston PHP tomorrow - Founders Panel Discussion

Hello Boston PHPeople,

We're one day away from our last event of 2013. We hope to see you tomorrow Wednesday, December 4th at NERD Center for our panel discussion with the founders of WayfairOne PicaOomph and COEverywhere. If you want to hear what it is really like to start and grow a technology company, you don’t want to miss this event. RSVP now on our event page: http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/events/143512102/

Sponsor tables. - "Pay as you can"

If you've attended one of our job fairs, you know that our sponsor tables attract a lot of activity and add to the fun of our 6PM - 7PM pizza hour. We’ll be beta testing a different approach to sponsor table pricing at our next couple of events. Sponsor tables will be available on a "pay as you can" basis. You decide the pricing. Seriously. If you have a project, company, product, idea or feature that you want to get in front of our community, you may apply for a sponsor table by emailing [address removed]. Once approved, you can set up a table for your organization to recruit for jobs, introduce a new project, product or service. The project, product, service or company must be technology-related. If you are a very small company or team just getting starting, pay us what you think you can afford and help support Boston PHP. If you are a larger, established company with deeper pockets, pay us what your accountants will approve. Proceeds will go to buying better video equipment and buying food for future events. Payments for the sponsor tables should be made via our Paypal account: [address removed]. Please pay by 12 noon on Thursday December 5th (day after the event). We hope this pricing structure will help us highlight new projects, organizations and companies in our community while continuing to cover the expenses of running our group.

Please remember: 1) This is a test. If it works, we’ll keep doing it. 2) You must first apply to reserve a sponsor table by emailing your request to [address removed]. We have a maximum of 10 tables available.

Job Board

We’ll have a job board posted on the wall in the area near the pizza. If you are hiring or looking for a job you may post your job or your resume on the job board.
