This time we decided to do something different and invited two lead engineers from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Online (WDPRO).
We will have two presentations about 20-30 minutes each.
TOPIC 1: Overcoming the Challenges of Working in Distributed Teams
Presented by Tim Enloe.
Working in distributed teams is hard. But it can also be rewarding. Learning to overcome the challenges to collaboration can lead to better value for your customers.
TOPIC 2: What's New (and Great) in PHP 5.4 & 5.5
Presented by Matt Ronchetti
The latest releases of PHP bring more speed, security and forward-thinking features for developers. Learn how to take advantage of these new features and how to establish best practices.
With nearly fifteen years of industry experience, Tim has lead teams to deliver web solutions for the world's largest entertainment and retail companies. In his current role Tim oversees more than a dozen parks and resorts related websites including Walt Disney World International, runDisney, ESPN Wide World of Sports, Disney Weddings, Disney's Club 33, Adventures by Disney, and more.

PARKING AND DIRECTIONS
There is plenty of parking on the street, as well as in the parking lot on the right side of the building. Please only park in this parking lot or on the street. The remaining parking lots belong to other business segments.
WDPRO occupies the entire building, so you can just come in through the main door.
Give a Ride, Get a Ride
If you'd like to carpool, please post your location in the carpool thread.
