June Evening - Securing REST / Profile your Code / Using Composer's Autoloader

KC's PHP User Group at ThinkBig Coworking

Join us on June 4th to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new!

Our Meeting Format

We love Web Development, new development techniques and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we know evenings are precious so we will shoot for:

6:00pm -Mingling

6:05pm - Meet and Greet our members and our friends at ThinkBig.

6:30pm - Lightning Talks / Presentation

Eric Poe - Using composer to manage dependencies and handle autoloading

John Kary - Using xDebug / WebGrind to find the slow spots in your code

Bryan Geraghty - Securing REST Web Services

Interested in giving a short presentation? Sign Up!

7:45 pm - 8pm Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question.

All Developers Welcome!

We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious or just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, FuelPHP, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.

Interested in giving a presentation to the group, or demoing something new and cool you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and get signed up!

    Great talks everyone! I had to leave a little before Bryan finished his talk... Does he have the slides available anywhere? It was a very informative talk.

      I'm happy to hear that people are interested. I've started an internal discussion to figure out the best way to make the slides available. I'll post here once I have an answer!

    Bryan's talk last night reminded me that Google released a game last week to help developers know what XSS is so that we know better how to mitigate it. Check out https://xss-game.appspot.com/

    For a first timer, I had a great time. Three great presentations with tons of great information. If you're a developer looking for a group that will help you grow, look no further. Great group of people!

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.
