Welcome back PHPers, the July CT PHP meetup promises to be another great meetup. We are gathering at Swipe iX(Northern Suburbs) so be sure to RSVP!

Talk One - Maintaining Open Source

Maintaining open source is a bit like being a monk. You give up your time and effort for "the greater good", and often have to deal with rudeness and entitlement along the way. It doesn't have to be like that. I want to talk to you about the how and why of creating open source code. Together, we'll look at what a good open source library looks like, and how it can pay for itself.
