Interactive Programming – Super Pair Style

  • May 29, 2014 · 7:00 PM

You’ve heard of Pair Programming – but have you ever tried Group Programming? When is the last time you wrote PHP and HTML just from memory, using the core language without frameworks? In a three challenge segment, Aaron will lead the group in solving three challenges – but will only program using your commands and with your input. Then, the group will reflect on the choices and see what is to be learned, and could anything have been done better. If you’ve never Group Programmed before, you’re going to be hooked!

Aaron Saray has been absolutely enthralled with programming for more than 2 decades. He’s programmed and scripted in many languages along the way, but gravitates towards Open Source technology. Aaron has given more than 15 PHP-centric conference talks, co-founded the Milwaukee PHP Users Group, runs the Milwaukee Web Design Meetup, and authored the WROX book Professional PHP Design Patterns. His true passion is mentoring programmers and encouraging team development, which just happens to be a great fit for his current role as Development Manager of a team specializing in PHP, Javascript and HTML5.

      Hi Rachel, We'd be happy to help you if we can. The best place to ask a question is on our discussion board (­) or in our IRC channel (#madisonphp on Freenode). Feel free to post a question about what you specifically need help with in either of those places.

    Great meeting - There is a difference between showing a presentation and sharing a real learning 'experience.' This meetup was very informative!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
