What we're about

A english-speaking group for PHP Developers in and around Amsterdam. Our goal is to grow the local community, search for new developers and spread knowledge and resources.

Amsterdam is a very active technology center for the Netherlands, many companies and people from various countries have chosen this area to settle down and start their companies. PHP has a big role in this and for that reason we created a User Group focused on this area and in doing activities in english to acommodate all of these developers.

Come meet with us to stay up to date with the latest in PHP and its ecosystem as well as meeting new people and networking.

Talk: The science of happiness
Speaker: Kristina Stojcik

Kristina Stojcik is a software engineer working at Mollie and living in Amsterdam. She's been working in PHP since the end of her formal education, 10ish years ago.
A talk inspired by the course "The science of wellbeing" at Coursera, by Professor Laurie Santos at Yale University. The course has changed the way on how Kristina sees happiness and she believes she can bring fresh perspective to others too.
The talk covers few misconceptions we have about things that bring happiness in our lives, and some other things we can try instead, to reach that happiness in a more sustainable way.
The course has its roots in positive psychology, but within the talk she makes sure to distinguish science-based facts as opposing to toxic positivity.
Part of the talk covers the concept of Flow, which ultimately makes us happy while completing challenging tasks. People can use that to find jobs that bring them fulfilment.
