PHP London August 2014

PHP London is a volunteer organised community group to promote knowledge sharing and best practice amongst PHP developers, web development and business professionals in London. Our regular monthly meeting is on the first Thursday of every month where PHP developers can get together for drinks, food, networking and hear a talk from other members of the group. In order to attend all you need is an interest in PHP.

Drinks at the beginning of the evening are generously provided by DataSift.

The world's social networks generate 2 billion items of data a day, we've built a platform that allows our customers to understand these. Now we're building something even bigger. Join us and tackle huge engineering challenges.

7:00-8:00 - informal drinks, snacks and chat

8:00-8:05 - welcome by executive committee & any group announcements

8:05-9:00 - talk:

The Power of Modern Version Control

Version Control Systems have been around for a long time, however in the last decade advancements in VCS and other powerful tools have drastically increased the size of any community that can collaborate with ease. In this talk I will focus on the combination of Git and GitHub, demo some advanced tools available in Git, and clarify some details on contributing to Open Source using GitHub.

Chris has been a PHP Developer for 10 years and has worked with many systems including Symfony2, Zend Framework 1 and 2, and Magento. He currently builds bespoke web applications with ZF1 and ZF2 and is a self-confessed Version Control Zealot. Chris is an Open Source believer and has made contributions to Open Source.
