Please join us for an evening of looking at the exciting past month of PHP news and learning about interesting concepts and projects in PHP and software development.
Light refreshments will be provided. Join us to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new.
6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet
6:15pm - Lightning Talk: Last Month in PHP
6:30pm - Andrew Koebbe - Workshop: PHP Koans: Learning PHP through broken code
If a person came up to you and asked how they should learn PHP, what would you say? Read a book or PHP the Right Way? Take an online course? Just start messing around? These usually our gotos, but there is something lacking in each of these: concise hands-on exercises that give you a guided tour of PHP without the fluff. PHP Koans provides this learning format. I'll explain my motivation for creating PHP Koans, we'll work through some of them together, and I'll tell you how you can help the project.

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!
