SydPHP February 2012 Meetup

This February we're having a different type of meeting!

We've had a lot of new interest from new members, and people that have shown interest but not yet come along to one of our meetings. So we're going to have a social event, and we're taking this february's meeting to the Edinburgh Castle Hotel! This is the usual pub that we visit after meetings.

Instead of a couple of hours of talks, we'll kick off with some meet and greet, getting to know each other, and then settle down into the reserved tables at the upstairs Edinburgh Castle Hotel venue. We'll chat about a range of topics to suit both new and seasoned PHP developers.

Anyone is welcome!

If you're a new member, this is a great way to get to know some of our regulars, and to meet our organisers, and get a feel for the fun and friendly community we have.

You'll have an opportunity to discuss topics at all levels of interest for PHP developers, some new and some old.

Don't eat before coming! We're going to have dinner and drinks at the pub!

Its going to be a great social evening, and an excellent opportunity for new members to meet with us, and get to know the community.

We hope to see you there!

    Great meetup. The idea of meeting in a pub made it easy to buy beer. I liked it. I would have liked to see a demonstration of what PHP can do, pitched to the novice because others already know. The meeting should be aimed at novice and newly interested users as much as experience pros. Fostering the uptake of PHP is a worthy activity. Teaching and education are always well received. Also, it helps to include new members to the group in the activities of the meetup. Novices can't participate in sophisticated or advanced activities or discussions. But these advanced topics should also be covered to show the capabilities of the system.

    Was a good event, the venue didn't leave much room for anyone to hold a talk on any specific subject matter, but that didn't mean people couldn't still share ideas or network with other like-minded professionals.

    Look forward to the next ;-)

    If anyone has any feedback on how we could have done this event better, please let us know! We're very much open to suggestion.

    Hey Jesse,

    No problem ;) Official time slot is 7pm-9pm, but its a pub. They're open till midnight I think? I'll definitely be loitering around, come along when you are ready, you're most welcome to drop in late :)

    That goes for anyone! If you're running late (or early) thats not a problem, we'd love for you to come along anyway! :)

    Hey Graham,

    Seems I'm going to be pretty late - am in the middle of flat hunting and need to inspect a place before I get there. Save a beer for me! :)

    Hey guys. I am a PHP newbie and hope to meet all of you in my first meetup.

    February 17, 2012

  • Graham W.

    We have a range of topics up our sleeves. From php 5.4 to frameworks, PSR-0 and fig Ventures, and of course, the open panel / discussion style. We have enough to keep everyone interested, and enough to be able to change topics as you guys want :-)

    It's going to be fun!
