A special PHPDublin this meetup, we're holding a Worlds Worst Hello World Workshop. The goal is to create the worst implementation of "hello world" that we possibly can.

Most of the time we strive to write simple, easy to understand PHP code. Well not this time. Here we get to showcase the worst of the worst. We want you to use every anti-pattern, every convoluted library, every bit of "bad code" you've seen to create something truly horrific. A frankenstein's monster of messy code and poor design decisions.

You can work alone or as part of a team. The only criteria are that you must write it in an hour, it must pass a testcase that we provide, and that it works. That's it, other than that go hog wild and have as much fun with it as you can!

The PHPDublin team will be there to provide support (both technical and emotional).

Food and drinks will be provided.

At the end a winner will be chosen by the PHPDublin organisers and they will receive the worlds worst ElePHPant as their prize!

Requirements: Laptop with PHP (any version) installed.

We have limited spots for this workshop, so please only RSVP if you're able to attend.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there, this is gonna be fun!
