Houston PHP Users Group Message Board › Hello from your new meetup organizer

Hello from your new meetup organizer

A former member
Hi Everyone,

I want to introduce myself as the new organizer of the Houston PHP Users Group. I have been an avid PHP developer in the Houston area for over 6 years, and I am really looking forward to organizing the meetups for this group. I will have help from Damian OBrien as an assistant organizer -- he is a good friend and we have worked together for many years. We will do our best to keep you informed and bring an interesting line-up of topics for the meetings.

Right now, meetups are normally scheduled for the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm, so I would like to hear from you if this time is good or if you would like to suggest something different. I want to encourage everyone to send me suggestions for meetup topics, and we will also hold polls for topics from time to time. Also, we are looking into a new meetup location if necessary.

I want to thank Joao for all the work he has done in keeping this meetup going in the past. Good job!

Take care,
Johnathan Hebert

Howdy Johnathan,
Good to have you with us. I've been a member for 3 years, though havent made it to a meetup in over a year, some of the reasons have been personal but some are not and i outline them below.


  • It is hard to make it from the woodlands(or anywhere outside the city) by 6:30, on a weekday.
  • Many months are canceled so it does not normally get planned into my schedule.
  • Many topics are picked last minute and that makes it difficult to plan ahead as well.
  • I cant believe i missed Lerdorf, but the videos were great! I guess i missed the default meetup announcement. (too used to ignoring them.)


I wish you luck and all the best in re-invigorating the group!

Mikhail
