I am thrilled to announce that a joint virtual meet-up of five (count 'em!) PHP groups will occur on Wednesday April 29th.

* York Region PHP
* Guelph PHP User Group
* Full Stack Buffalo
* Ottawa PHP

We are also inviting Laravel Toronto.

We are using Google Meet (formerly Google Hangouts). We are using the up-to-250-attendee version. We anticipate being comfortably below 250, but we anticipate (hope) a broader participation.

Although at this moment in time we are faced with hosting virtual meet-ups or having no meet-ups at all, we want to learn from this opportunity to host a joint meet-up so that perhaps we can learn to host one annually. The thinking is that since February is always a tough month for on-site meet-ups, that we should schedule a Virtual meet-up each February. And, as a way for us to keep in touch, we should have "one big joint meet-up".

I am further thrilled to announce that Caleb Porzio will be presenting Livewire and AlpineJS. Caleb is a co-organizer of Full Stack Buffalo, speaker at the recent LaraConOnline (, and author of Livewire ( and AlpineJS ( You can hear Caleb on his weekly "No Plans To Merge" podcast ( In his spare time, Caleb shares his VS Code set-up at

Looking forward to seeing you!
