    etting up your development environment, reviewing code written by others, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)
    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand PHP developers come from all backgrounds, many doing work as developers using other languages than just PHP, while many others are from a system administration background.
    Our attendees range in all skill levels from beginner, to weekend warrior, to development professionals and experts. Whether you're curious about PHP and just starting out, or work with PHP for a living, our goal is that you will learn something new, useful and thought provoking during one of our meetings.

    Regular attendees of our meetings are knowledgeable about and use the following PHP frameworks/libraries: Symfony, Zend Framework, Laravel, Composer, Silex, Slim, CakePHP, WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, just to name the most popular.
    Interested in giving a more formal presentation to the group, or demoing something new and exciting you're working on? Contact one of our organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and tell us your ideas!

    What is coderetreat?
    Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
    Details on the website:  http://coderetreat.org/
    Specifics on what a typical coderetreat day is: http://coderetreat.org/facilitating/structure-of-a-coderetreat

    The coderetreat day consists of 5-6 sessions, each session's learnings building upon previous sessions. The morning focuses on becoming comfortable with the problem domain, breaking old habits and beginning focused self-discovery. The afternoon pushes the envelope by challenging pairs to stretch their skills and understanding of abstractions, modular design and test-driven development.

    Global Day of Coderetreat joins cities across the world in coderetreat, all on the same day.
    Money is to reserve your spot and will be refunded when you show up.  If you don't show up, it will be donated to some programming related cause.
