Not new to PHP? This'll be a great night to see under-the-hood of a non-trivial online system (highly interactive front-end that has significant back-end communication). Plus, you can come and give insights/wisdom to those of us who don't yet have your experience.
New to PHP? This'll be a great night to see some real-live coding of webpages using one of the more popular PHP "frameworks." Plus see how the Model-View-Controller pattern/approach is being used to make programming, debugging, fixing, and upgrading your code easier and faster!
