Hacker Track - For those members who choose not to participate in either of the presentations, we'll provide a hack space for you to work on your own projects by yourself or in collaboration with other members.
To help provide structure to this enhanced focus on education, the topics will be selected from two books as follows:
~ PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites (http://www.larryullman.com/books/php-and-mysql-for-dynamic-web-sites-visual-quickpro-guide-4th-edition/)
~ PHP Advanced and Object-Oriented Programming (http://www.larryullman.com/books/php-advanced-and-object-oriented-programming/)
Book purchase and self-paced work is not required. You will learn PHP topics by simply attending the monthly presentations. You will learn more and comprehend more by reading and practicing on your own between Meetups, if you choose.
To get caught up on previous talks access each month's video at 200 Days of Code (http://200doc.org/).
