Please join us for a preview of the PHP 7 talk that Joseph Maxwell will be giving at php[tek] (https://tek.phparch.com/) next month in St. Louis.
Light refreshments will be provided. Join us to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new.
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: Writing Better Code with the New PHP 7
PHP 7 is an exciting release in the world of PHP. In addition to major performance enhancements, PHP 7 provides many features that make writing code faster and protect from pesky software defects. These include the spaceship operator, the null coalesce operator, and an all-new order of execution. I will discuss pre-PHP 7 code and teach you how to take advantage of PHP 7. I will also share information on breaking changes to help you avoid headaches down the road.

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, Laravel, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.
Interested in giving a presentation to the group, or demoing something you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting to sign up!
