Announcing Auckland PHP meetup with object oriented PHP, live video of on 24 Sep, 6:30-9pm, Auckland University

Auckland, NZ
NZ and International PHPers,

I'm happy to announce September Auckland PHP meetup with object oriented PHP. We are expecting to distribute this meetup live over the Internet.


24 Sep 2009 6:30pm - 9:00pm

Computer Science Seminar Room, Room 279, 2nd floor, Computer Science Building (Bldg 303), City Campus.

How to get there:

The building is located on the corner of Wellesley Street and Princes Street. To get to room 279, enter campus either from the Symonds Street side or Princes St. and find "Red Square" - an open area bounded by the old wing of building 303, the Student Association complex, the recreation centre, and the Chemistry / Geology etc. towers. On the southern side of the square (which is really just a car park roof) you see the glass front to the reception area of the Faculty of Science student centre. To the right of the student centre, there is a set of doors & as you enter you'll see stairs going up on the right. Ignore the stairs and head straight past the vending machines, turning left into the corridor to the overbridge (you'll notice the department's computer museum "timeline" on the right-hand wall). On the other side of the overbridge, you'll end up in a lift lobby. Head up to 2nd floor. Room 279 is straight opposite the lifts as you come out.

*** Main topic ***

Object Oriented PHP

Speaker: Ulrich Speidel, Auckland University

About Ulrich

Ulrich Speidel (born Ulrich G√ľnther in 1967) trained as a physicist in Germany and Auckland, where he then completed a PhD in Computer Science, founded his own business, got married and thus ended up with his present surname. He is now a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland. He has authored, co-authored and edited a number of books on PHP and related subjects for O'Reilly in Germany.

Topic overview

Objects can be confusing for programmers who, like many PHP users, come from a non-programming or non-OO programming background. PHP itself changed its object model between version 4 and 5, which added to the confusion. This talk shows you how to use PHP5 objects in simple everyday programming starting from a non-OO perspective. Topics covered included classes, instantiation, properties, methods, the magic methods __set() and __get(), and inheritance.

We are expecting that this meetup will be distributed through live video. We have yet to confirm that web address for this.

We are also looking for a pizza and beer sponsor for this meetup. Please get in contact with me, if you'd like to sponsor this meetup. In return we will give you the opportunity to present your business on live video for 2 minutes.

Kind Regards,
