We are starting on a mission to showcase, discuss and learn anything in the world of PHP Developer life, encompassing anything from Symfony and Laravel, Composer, Personal/Commercial app demos, Toolchains, Dev culture and of course, Birmingham.
We're also full stack developers, so we host and welcome talks on DevOps subjects/tooling, front-end JS Frameworks such as Vue and React and even other server-side languages such as Go or Python.
Don't hesitate to get in touch if there is a subject or idea you'd like to discuss!
Happy 2019! You didn't think we'd stop, did you?
Oh no, we've been busy. This year is half booked already, and we're off to a cracking start... we've got the usual license to give away, drinks and pizza. All are welcome - non PHP (neither of our talks are exclusively on PHP!) and non tech people alike!
A quick shoutout to our new sponsor, Jump24 who have previously sponsored us - who are also looking for hires! https://www.indeed.co.uk/viewjob?t=senior+web+developer&jk=d1254ea2030d76d6&_ga=2.67172690.211107900.1547479314-1309266227.1547026504
Quick Intro to Cryptography - Richard Wallman
Cryptography is something we constantly use, whether we realise it or not, but it's a subtle and nuanced area. This will be a shallow skim rather than a deep dive on the subject, for those who can't tell their RSA from their elbow.
The UX of Text - Stuart Langridge
About bots, and how they shouldn't pretend to be humans. About how user experience is more than just user interface. About language, and how a word can be worth a thousand pictures. About le mot juste. About where we go next.
