Pittsburgh PHP Developers Group Message Board › Meeting notes: 2 Sep 2009

Meeting notes: 2 Sep 2009

These notes are fairly poopy. I just transcribed them today. Earlier I was working on JavaScript for a dynamic form and I made it a little more complex than it should have been if I just wanted to get it done, but once I have it done it will be sweet and I did the functions modularly so I can use it with other things, so I guess it was a pet project as well. Also, would someone please critique the XML structure because I got no feedback and would like to know of any possible issues or confusion. We could actually get a, ya know, real PHP-driven dynamic website for this group sometime.

Oh, and Nick: could you RapidShit or MOARUpload your slideshow presentation.

Alright, notes time
