Come join us at Blackdog Coffeehouse for our regular third-Saturday get-together.
Whether you have development question you want answers to, want to be a fly on the wall or just need some face time with other developers, you're encouraged to bring your laptop maybe get a bite 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
* Setting 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!
