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.
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 - Matt Coleman: Laravel Collections and Eloquent
Eloquent is a database agnostic, ActiveRecord implementation for working with a databases used by Laravel. Collections are a syntactic wrapper around arrays that allow you to write cleaner code easier and with less lines. Since Eloquent uses Collections we will go over the basics of both.

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!
