To support the practice of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are partnering with NomadPHP to convert this month's event to an online-only format!


A deeper look into open source projects and what makes them successful.

Find out how you can get involved in open source, where to start with a new project, contributing to an existing project, and what it takes to have a great open source project.

AGENDA (estimated)

We are new to the virtual event space, but based on my discussions with Nomad PHP, here's an estimate of how it will look. If this is your first time connecting to a NomadPHP event, make sure you start connecting as close to 5:45 as you can because first-time setup can take 5-10 minutes.

5:45 pm -- Meeting opens for connections
6:00 pm - 6:15 pm -- BostonPHP Introduction
6:15 pm - 6:45 pm -- Feature Presentation - Don Gilbert
6:45 pm - 7:30 pm -- Panel Discussion
7:30 pm -- Q&A, community announcements


The streaming platform for this month's event is being provided free of charge by NomadPHP. NomadPHP is the PHP Meetup group for people who don't have a local PHP Meetup group.
