Re-Ingite the Igniters!

Let's get this group rolling again! I'm nuts over the awesomeness of CodeIgniter, and when I saw the group was abandoned this summer I volunteered to step up and help bring our community together.

I've already heard a bunch of great suggestions for themed events, including: Debugging, Integration with Social Media APIs, favorite libraries and extensions, and more... So this fall I'm ready to bring in some fantastic guest presenters, but first let's get re-acquainted with a casual after-work social event.

During the event, I'll be listening carefully to your suggestions and requests — this isn't "my" group, it's OUR group. Let's make the events both fun and informative for us all!

The venue, Woodrow's, is just a few feet away from the Chambers St. stop on the A/C/2/3 trains... and you can also take the 4/5/6 to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall (6-8 minutes walk) or the R train to City Hall (3-4 minutes walk).

We're going to have plenty of space downstairs, away from the crowds.  Premium drinks, no televisions - so we can talk!

      Sorry you missed us - the entire staff knew to tell people the meetup was downstairs (as described and photographed above)... we also had signs set up by 6:05. Maybe next time?

    Aaron,
    Would you ever consider having meetups in Westchester County sometimes as well? Working in CT has made it hard to get to meetings in NYC in the past. There's a good group of PHP coders in that and the Fairfield County area that might justify it for once in a while. If that's possible, I'd be happy to even offer to present at a future meetup.

      I might consider being occasionally situated near Grand Central Terminal... but even that would add multiple subway rides for anyone on the West Side. (The current location is an unbeatable 20-30 minutes, door-to-door, for a major fraction of the city.) If there's a large developer community in Fairfield, maybe it would make sense to establish another chapter *there* -- perhaps even to connect via simulcast or a live two-way feed? Let's discuss options tonight.

      In that case, it might make the most sense to try and connect this group with the Fairfield County PHP Group then. http://fairco.phpmeet...­

    Looking forward to meeting everyone, in just a few hours! We'll be in the lower level, just turn right at the front door - we should have the space to ourselves.

    This should be a fun and exciting evening!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
