Our Evening Meeting Format

We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we shoot for this schedule:

6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet

6:15pm - Lightning Talk: Last Month in PHP

6:30pm - Talk: Blast off with Grav, the dynamic flat file CMS:

There are many great CMSs out there. Database-backed CMSes provide a nice admin interface, and static file generators have great performance and content deployment strategies. But both of these approaches have their downsides and there is another option with the best of both worlds.

In this session we'll check out Grav (, a dynamic flat file CMS with an impressive optional admin UI and great performance. We'll walk through basic set up, content creation, custom content types and more.

7:30pm - Open discussion & help session

All Developers Welcome!

We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, FuelPHP, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.
