Our next meetup is scheduled for Monday, August 27! And we're excited that our group has almost reached 450 members!
No plans tonight? The Front Range PHP Users Group is hosting a meeting at 6:30PM!
The Front Range PHP Users Group was launched in September 2008, provides substantive presentations, discussions, and technical material on a monthly basis revolving around the PHP web development language and supporting technologies, and is one of our friends. The FRPUG meeting will be held at 2399 Blake Street #170, Denver, CO (at Beatport), from 6:30-9:00.
This month FRPUG will be combining with the local Python user group. Drew Strickland will be presenting on how to get a project started using Twitter Bootstrap. We will also be learning about a library for Python that provides queuing for events.
Food and drink will be provided so please contact David Stockton RSVP by sending me an email.
Bootstrap? Twitter? Why?
Depending on member interest, DenverLAMP also plans to cover the Bootstrap front-end toolkit next January at our meetup, which will most likely cover the Bootstrap 3.0 release (following the current project timeline). The denverlamp.org website is also in the process of being ported to use Bootstrap, so expect to see that sometime next week.
What exactly is Bootstrap and why should you use it? The simplest answer: it could be the next 960 grid system alternative, which many/most front-end developers have used to create css-based layouts for the past few years. There are already dozens of Themes for Twitter Bootstrap available for free or for a small fee.
Denver LAMP Job List COMING NEXT WEEK
We have been contacted by several companies looking to hire LAMP developers in the Denver area, so we've decided to add a DenverLAMP Job List to the new version of denverlamp.org coming next week. Not only is the new website going to built using Twitter Bootstrap, but it will also have new pages!
Is your company looking to fill a position? Please emails us at [address removed] with your job title and description.
Our first meetup: a comparison of revision control systems Git and SVN
Each presentation should last 30-45 minutes, so the event is scheduled to start at 7PM and end before 8:30PM. We're hoping that by covering both systems, the meeting can end with a comparison of the two revision control systems during the Q&A. And after the presentation, anyone interested is invited to a nearby restaurant for further discussion and networking over food and/or beer.
We are currently in talks with several venues for the first meetup, and the info will be posted asap. Know of a good venue? Please emails us at [address removed]
Our future meetups: security, mobile and tablet css, php frameworks, and more
We are still looking into venue locations, speakers and volunteers:
Do you know of a venue that could be interested in hosting one of our future meetups? Or are you interested in getting involved? Please contact DenverLAMP and let us know about it!
