The PHP community has been growing strongly for years and picking up speed as it moves. As a low-entry, robust, and expandable interpretative language, it's generated a significant percentage of the internet as we know it. Expanding our skill and tool set is important in our growth with PHP. The Corner Workbench is a forum to learn about PHP, tools, utilities, packages, libraries, frameworks, and a lot more. As we move forward we'll uncover principles of PHP, programming, development, and design. Each new bit of information helps us to become stronger in our talents.
Our meeting space is being provided by Tampa Hackerspace, a member based cooperative makerspace; make sure to thank them.
The last few months we've had a good turnout for The Corner Workbench, covering parts of PHP Basic Concepts. Last we ventured into compound variable types, after discussing scalar types the previously. This meeting we're going to be focusing on Objects further, including some of the built-in SPL (Standard PHP Library).
There seems to be large subsection of members who are relatively new to PHP and programming in general. In the effort to get us on a level playing ground, we are going to formalize the concepts to get started. In this series we will cover a rudimentary understanding of what a PHP program is, how it works, and what basic pieces are used.
We have a discussion board for The Corner Workbench.
