PRESENTATION: More Than Just a Hammer: Expand and integrate beyond PHP

Presentation by Ben Edmunds, CTO, Mindfulware

Learn to expand beyond just PHP to integrate other languages into both your personal skill set and the solutions you deliver.

In this talk, we'll cover integrating JavaScript (frontend and backend via node) and how you can expand your current skill set to include this or any other language alongside PHP. The old saying, if all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail, is very true, so let's learn how to use a wrench and maybe a chainsaw!

Not only will this give you another tool in your tool belt, it will give you a greater understanding of development practices and the ability to take on new jobs, new projects, and new challenges.

About Ben: CTO of an awesome company you've never heard of by day, hacking on crazy ideas by night. PHP Town Hall podcast co-host. Author of Securing PHP Apps. Conference speaker. Open source advocate.

New Meeting Feature: Open Spaces! We're going to continue with a new discussion format among attendees. Please come with some questions or discussion topics in mind. The group will vote on suggestions and we'll cover things, based on interest, in a rotating panel style. Come share your expertise!
