Want to help promote mental health in the tech industry? Want to meet the speakers of the JestPHP Conference? Want to eat delicious tacos? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then come eat at Rubio's (at Mesa Riverview) on the night before JestPHP. If you show them them the fundraiser flyer (see photos below), then 20% of the money you spend on dinner (between 5pm and 9pm) will be donated to the Open Sourcing Mental Illness (OSMI) organization (https://osmihelp.org). Invite your families and friends to come too so we can raise more money! The speakers of the JestPHP conference will be eating together at Rubio's that night at around 7pm. So if you come by when we are around, you'll be able to meet the speakers even before the event (which is the next morning). For tickets and information about JestPHP, see https://jestphp.com. What is OSMI? Open Sourcing Mental Illness is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to raising awareness, educating, and providing resources to support mental wellness in the tech and open source communities. Visit https://osmihelp.org for more information and to make direct donations.

Luther Monson will be speaking to us this month to show us how to build CLI tools in PHP and packaging them up as Phars. He'll also show off one of his CLI tools that he built to help with his own devops tasks. We hope you enjoy our PHP meetup! As usual, we will be sharing PHP news, and hosting a raffle for prizes. Stick around afterwards, and we'll walk or drive somewhere, find something to drink, talk shop, and hang out. __________________________
