Let's kick off the new year with a revival of the "Columbia chapter" meetups for Baltimore PHP!

Jon Barnes and his team at ADG Creative have graciously offered to host our first meeting of the year on Wednesday, January 18th. Food and drink will be provided. Please RSVP if you plan on attending so we can get an accurate head-count.

Tonight's Presentation Summary:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing how we interact with the digital world. In this talk, we’ll explore the implementation of several examples which bridge the gap between the physical and digital world using PHP:

- Asking Alexa for information from a PHP application
- Displaying API data on an Arduino-powered display
- Using PHP to control LEDs on a Raspberry Pi to monitor application uptime
- Connecting IR sensors to Slack to see whether a conference room is in use

Evening Schedule:

6:30 PM - Socializing and food (provided by ADG Creative)
7:00 PM - Presentation starts
8:00 PM - Presentation ends, Q&A, hang around and chat
