  • KC's PHP User Group returns to the Google Fiber Space Lounge
    I'm  happy to announce that our next evening meeting will be hosted at the Google Fiber Space Lounge! Join us on April 2nd to meet new people, eat some pizza, discuss PHP, and maybe learn something new! Join us for food, friends and plenty of sharing at our evening event.
    Group Code Refactoring
    This month, Dan will offer up a class and it's accompanying unit test for you to brutally tear apart.  John Kary will be leading us in a discussion on what can be improved, what is flat wrong, etc.  All are welcome to discuss, critique and learn.  This will dove tail with discussion from John Kary on refactoring as well.
    Our Meeting Format
    We love Web Development, new development techniques and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we know evenings are precious so we will shoot for:
    6:00 pm Pizza and Socializing
    6:15 pm Meet and Greet our members and our sponsors.
    6:30 pm Lightning Talks
    John Kary - Last Quarter in PHP 
    Eric Poe - Demo of - GitHub's code editor (and Invite Giveaway!)
    Dan Holmes - beginner's guide to vagrant+puphpet to manage development sites
    John Kary  - Beginners guide to refactoring common "code smells"
    Interested in presenting? Sign Up!
    7:30 pm Group Code Refactoring 
    7:45 pm - 8pm Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question

    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious or 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, FuelPHP, 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 new and cool you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and get signed up!
