  • I Am PHP and So Can You!

    The InNEVation Center

    This month we have Adam Englander presenting "I Am PHP and So Can You!" Adam Englander is a long-time member of the PHP community. Does he write PHP every day? No, that’s not a requirement to be a member of the community. He was a PHP developer for years without being a part of the PHP community. Over the past five or so years, he has become a member of a vibrant community of developers and activists we call the PHP community. It doesn’t take any special skills or time commitment. What does it take? Find out during this great talk and you may be surprised. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/PHP-Vegas-1481879648787405/) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/phpvegas). Check out our website at http://PHPVegas.com Thank you to TekSystems for sponsoring our Users Group with Pizza/Drinks. We will also be giving away one of our few remaining ElePHPants. JetBrains is also giving us a one FREE year PHPStorm license to raffle off also. See you all there! #VegasTech

  • Multi-threaded Processing with Swoole

    The InNEVation Center

    Greetings PHP Folks, We've got an awesome talk lined up with our long-time user group member, John Fansler. He is presenting a cutting edge async framework for PHP called Swoole and how to do Multi-threaded Processing with it! We will take a look into Swoole coroutines and how they allow PHP to compete with Golang and Node in a multi-threaded environment. Whether extending a standard PHP app on a traditional web server, or building new services that utilize socket programming (think WebSockets), Swoole stands to widen the scope of tasks that PHP is actually perfect for… Get ready to think about tasks in a whole new way! You will leave with a deeper understanding of multi-threaded, asynchronous programming, and have some real-life examples to speed up file/image processing, socket communications, and asynchronous DB queries. This is sure to be a super informative meetup to see the future of PHP. Be sure to checkout TekSystems if you need a tech gig, they sponsor our food/drink! Also big thanks to InNEVation center for their amazing venue/co-working space. JetBrains is hooking it up with another 1 year free PHP Storm license. We will have an ElePHPant to give away to 1 lucky herder. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/PHP-Vegas-1481879648787405/) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/phpvegas).

  • Kenny Eliason - WordPress Development w/ Roots.io

    The InNEVation Center

    *Next Thursday January 10th* Hello PHP Devs! This month we have a pivotal member of the VegasTech community. Kenny Eliason who is CTO & Founder of NeONBRAND, a local marketing and biz dev agency. He will be speaking about roots.io which provides open-source tools and resources for modern WordPress development. WordPress often gets a bad wrap as being out of date and impractical for many medium to large-scale situations. Version Control doesn’t work, updates are too frequent, can’t develop with a team, on and on and on… But with over 30% of the web running WordPress, it’s time to up our game. Roots.io puts WordPress on its head and allows for a robust development environment that will solve most, if not all, of the complaints non-WordPress developers have about the platform. Come on down for your chance at a ZendCon 2018 ElePHPant (Thanks RougeWave) We will be giving away a free year of PHP Storm provided by JetBrains. Thanks to TekSystems for sponsoring us and providing food/drink. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/PHP-Vegas-1481879648787405/) Twitter (http://twitter.com/phpvegas).
