Learn to build a blog from scratch in under an hour using CodeIgniter!

Hey, everyone!  We're back again...

Last month we had some great "power-users", but also quite a few people asked for introductory tutorials.  So now's the time for it!

The CodeIgniter website has an out-of-date tutorial that shows (sort-of) how to build a blog-style website in 20 minutes using CodeIgniter.  But it doesn't match the current interface (v2.1.2), and is moves awfully fast for a novice to follow.

So for our October meeting, organizer Aaron Sylvan will build a blog from scratch, using CodeIgniter, in a single presentation.  We've also got a great group of experienced developers who will be helping the newbies and sharing the best tricks of the trade with each other.

The venue will be the same as last month, but this time we have our own projection screen, so everyone will be able to see the demos.

6:00-6:30pm Cocktails

6:30-7:30pm Presentation/Demo

7:30-8:00pm Networking, Sharing Hacks, etc.

Come join us on Wednesday, October 24th. for good times with your fellow CI PHP'ers!

    First time I've seen CodeIgniter and it made me see how to install and begin using it (and feel like: "I can do this!"
