  • Park in the garage and enter the main building to the west of the garage. Follow the signs and turn right at the security desk.
  • Please join us for an evening of looking at the exciting past month of PHP news and learning about something interesting in PHP-land.
    Light refreshments will be provided. Join us to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new.
    Our Evening Meeting Format
    We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we shoot for this schedule:
    6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet
    6:15pm - Lightning Talk: Last Month in PHP
    6:30pm - Presentation: TBA
    Your topic here? Contact us to speak!
    Rate the talks!
    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, Laravel, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.
    Interested in giving a presentation to the group, or demoing something you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting to sign up!

  • We'll meet online to plan our calendar for the year.
    What things would you like to learn in 2017?
    What are the newest skills and topics we should cover?
    What programs have you seen but have no clue how to use?
    Which speakers are your favorites?
    Bring your best list and meet us here...online...and earn a raffle ticket for the upcoming June CC giveaway.
    See you then! Curl up in your PJs, bring something warm in a mug, and we'll talk. If you have a VOIP setup, you can use your mic and headphones. If you just want to chat in the chat window and listen to the rest of us, that works, too.
    Thanks for helping make 2017 another great success for our group!
    Feel free to put suggestions in the comments section before the meeting.

  • Having trouble finding time to write your blog post. Me too.
    I want to have a dedicated time to work on my blog post each week, I figured it would be great to schedule a time to blog and be with other WordPress people.
    Let's get together and write and talk some, but be a support network to get our blog posts written.
    This is not a help session, it is to post blogs. 
    This is not an information session, it is to post on your own website.
    I plan on two in the morning and two in the evening per Month on Tuesdays or Wednesdays... Depending on my teaching schedule. Hope you to see you there.
    NOTE - The library has free wifi. If you want a secure internet connection, bring your own hotspot - one will not be provided. The library does have secure computers right outside the conference 2 meeting room.

    Join WordPress KC co-organizer Travis Pflanz as we discuss the setup of Yoast SEO plugin and how to achieve the seeming unattainable bliss of getting all green lights in the Yoast SEO "Analysis" on your website's pages and posts.
    This Meetup is good for WordPress users of all skill levels, especially beginners - since Yoast SEO is one of the first plugins most users will install on their new website. We will not be setting up or installing WordPress at this Meetup.

  • Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:
      Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?
      Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.
      Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.
    Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.
    Looking forward to it!
