The next generation of developers are looking for learning resources, Universities are not able to provide the platform required to everyone, it comes at a high cost... Current free resources are lacking behind with new improvements in the language. Here's how we're filling that requirement. PHP School, a completely Open Source learning platform for "students" to push themselves, at their own pace, not driven by deadlines but topics of interest. Teach the skills that are required, show off your project with a tutorial workshop! The possibilities are endless, let's help shape the next generation.

Before/After the Meetup:

A few members will likely be in a nearby pub (location will be tweeted out) beforehand (from around 6pm) for a drink and a bite to eat, and afterwards there'll be a group heading to Soar Point (or somewhere else nearby) for a social catch up.


Deacon Street car park is where people usually park, the postcode is LE2 7DP. (There's also spots on the street directly outside the gateway building but they're usually all taken up!) Deacon Street is available from 6pm onwards as we have permission from the University to use the car park. If the barrier is down, ring the buzzer and explain that you are attending the PHP East Midlands monthly meetup.
