December Coffee Hangout - The Welcome Back Brian Edition

Come hang out this weekend with other Kansas City-area PHP developers! This Saturday we will meet at Black Dog Coffee House in Lenexa, KS. Grab a drink or snack at the register and meet us in the meeting room at the back of the store.

Whether you have development question you want answers to, want to weep into your coffee while telling your latest coding nightmare, be a fly on the wall or just want some face time with other developers, you're encouraged to bring your laptop and grab a coffee or snack at this informal meetup!

Our Saturday Meeting Format

Our Saturday meetings are free-formed and the attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Our rough meeting structure follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* S
etting up your development environment, reviewing code written by others, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All Developers Welcome!

We understand PHP developers come from all backgrounds, many doing work as developers using other languages than just PHP, while many others are from a system administration background.

Our attendees range in all skill levels from beginner, to weekend warrior, to development professionals and experts. Whether you're curious about PHP and just starting out, or work with PHP for a living, our goal is that you will learn something new, useful and thought provoking during one of our meetings.

Regular attendees of our meetings are knowledgeable about and use the following PHP frameworks/libraries: Symfony, Zend Framework, Laravel, Composer, Silex, Slim, CakePHP, WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, just to name the most popular.

Interested in giving a more formal presentation to the group, or demoing something new and exciting you're working on? Contact one of our organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and tell us your ideas!

    Crunchy, slick stuff is starting to fall from the sky. I'm not as concerned about the drive to the KCPUG as I am about the drive back home. I'm going to sit this one out, y'all. Have a happy and safe holiday season.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it out to this one. Have a safe and merry Christmas everyone!

    The weather looks to be holding off for the time being. I won't be canceling the meeting if people that live closer are still able to make it, but I may not make it in from Lawrence. I'll monitor weather and make it if I can.

    I've got a wedding to attend before this. So if the wedding goes long, I may not be able to make it.

    Please keep an eye on the weather forecast as we approach Saturday. Current forecasts as of Wednesday night show a high likelihood for freezing rain before noon on Saturday, changing to wintery mix and snow by afternoon or evening.

    We will monitor weather conditions early Saturday morning and will post an update to this page whether the meeting will be held as planned.

    We care about the safety of everyone in the group and would not encourage anyone to drive in hazardous conditions just to attend a meetup!

    If I have time I'll try to put together an abbreviated "Last Month in PHP" since we have quite a few people attending, and a projector should be available in the coffee house meeting room.

    Excited to meet you all.
