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 - John Kary

6:30pm - Presentation: Irritating Strings -- Iterating Things - Eric Poe
Arrays are beautiful in PHP. One can map them, reduce them, filter them, foreach them, and use them in generators. Strings, on the other hand, are mere shadows to the Array. One can, uh, input and output Strings, and, when brave, manipulate them. What makes Arrays so awesome and Strings so dull? Iterators.

In this talk, we’ll look at the modest origins of the String and the basics of the Iterator. Then, we’ll look at how we can make the String as awesome as the Array through the use of iterator interfaces.

By the end of this talk, you will know the origins of the PHP String and you will be able to extend your knowledge of iterating through a String to be able to iterate through customized objects.

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!
