Cracking the Tech Career
The US has been in full employment for the past few years, yet why is it so hard for Millennials to get a living wage? Join me in "Cracking the Tech Career" and get your McMansion like a Baby Boomer. Or maybe you want to be a minimalist: join a fight club, and use the money for health insurance? I don't judge. If you already have a job, you will benefit from the first half where we discuss career planning and networking. You won't benefit much from the second half where we refine resumes and mock interview. Show up for the first meetup then weekly commitments online for two months. The book we will be covering is https://www.amazon.com/Cracking-Tech-Career-Insider-Microsoft/dp/1118968085/ Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cracking-the-tech-career-tickets-49789601037 Tim Le Senior Percolator Actual results may vary from estimates.

What we're about

Boston PHP is the largest education-focused Meetup in New England with more than 3,700 members.

We are a lot more than PHP!

We have been meeting since 2002 (http://past.bostonphp.org) and usually meet every month on a Wednesday. We have a wide range of full-stack development topics related to PHP.

All meetings are free, and we encourage everyone to participate and get involved and help grow the PHP community. After each meeting we typically go to a nearby restaurant/bar/pub for more informal discussion.

Our member engagement strategy offers services beyond monthly meetups. We focus on the continuing education of already well-educated adults.

For example, we have developed six virtual self-study groups that are run during the down time between bi-monthly in-person Meetups:

PHP Percolate
jQuery jAM
HTML5 Brunch
Drupal Diner
Git Lunch
Agile Appetizer
Angular Stew
AWS Snack

More than 230 members have completed at least one of these courses and are enshrined on our Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment (http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/messages/boards/thread/21414292).

In addition, more than 260 members receive job postings from other members via our Boston PHP Job Board (beta) (http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/messages/boards/thread/44803382).

We video all of our meetups. To access our videos, just follow this link (http://videos.bostonphp.org).

Calling all presenters:

We want to have a mix of events from beginner and advanced topics. We are looking for presenters for each of these topics. If you (or someone you know) are experienced in a topic and have some presentation skills - then please let us know. We are also looking for volunteers to help us with planning, logistics, and other odd jobs.
