Today's Thriving PHP Ecosystem

Most people who actively work with PHP every day rarely confine themselves to just PHP.

PHP Developers have access to a nearly dizzying array of tools, packages, language features, QA tools and countless frameworks and styles to develop with. In this Tour of the PHP Ecosystem, long time PHP enthusiast Dan Holmes will attempt to highlight many of the projects and developments that have come of age in recent years.

Whether you have long settled on one particular style or framework for development, or just looking at PHP for the first time, we are sure you will spot something fresh you hadn't seen before.

    • Have you wanted to give a talk before, but just didn't know what topic to pick?
    • Are you from another meetup and think PHP development is limited to adding snippets of code to an HTML file?
    • Do you want to just hang out and shout "Why didn't you add my favorite thing?" at the speaker?

You should not miss this meeting.


Our Standard Meeting Format

We love Web Development, PHP, new development techniques and everything in between. Often our meetings are a little free-formed, but for the most part fall into

  • Meet and Greet new members!
  • John Kary presents his "Last Month in PHP" - Some highlights of new happenings in the PHP Universe
  • Members bring forward issues, concerns or other things of interest

All Developers Welcome!

We understand that many PHP Developers don't just code in PHP. Whether you are working in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Slim, FuelPHP or a CMS like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla our goal is that you will find something new, relevant and useful.

We are also happy to have presentations or even code reviews if appropriate. If you are interested in giving either, just let us know!

    Love the monthly PHP recap by John Kary, and Dan's presentation was a great overview of the current state of PHP and a lot of the ways we can make use of it.

    Both John's and Dan's presentations were great! It reinforces why I use PHP for developing software.

    I wanted to thank each of you for attending our meeting today. However, I do regret having gone so far over time. I knew this particular topic would go long, but our open discussions are very important to me personally and important for our learning from each other.

    Even with presentations, we should always expect to have at least 30 min for open discussion as a community. I promise to do better
    next time.

    I've posted today's talks at http://kcpug.org

    I hope to see you all next month!
