The popular lightning talks format returns in November. We've got variety of topics this month so there will be something for everyone.

Your first time coming to PHPSW? Welcome!

Here's how the evening tends to run:
* Feel free to turn up from 6:30pm.
* We'll have pizza and a selection of soft drinks & alcoholic drinks available from about 6:45pm, all free of charge thanks to our sponsors. It's a great chance to speak to people (we're a friendly bunch!) and do a bit of networking. Just speak to an organiser if you'd like an introduction to people, or just dive in and say "hello!".
* At 7pm, we'll do a quick welcome talk and some community announcements
* At ~7:10pm we'll do the first 4 talks
* Then there's a small break whilst we switch over speakers
* At ~8:10pm We have our remaining talks
* We finish at ~9pm. We always go for a drink somewhere afterwards to discuss the talks and anything else that takes your fancy.

As always, a big thanks to our meetup sponsors Ents24 (, Brightpearl (, Space 48 ( & OneSub ( without whom we wouldn't be able to put on our meetups.
