6:00 PM

Stowers Institute

1000 E 50th St, Kansas City, MO (map)

  • Enter from the parking garage.
  • John Kary will return to the stage to present Part 2 of his "Functions" series. He will discuss the many flexible ways PHP allows defining and invoking functions, then introduce how functional programming concepts map, reduce and filter work in PHP. (30 minutes)
    If you missed Part 1 of John's series on Functions the slides and video are online.
    After the presentation will be an open Hack Night. Use the remaining hour to work on a project, discuss questions with other attendees, or experiment with a new library. This is also a perfect time to sit down with someone and have your development questions answered! John will also have some exercises you can complete to use techniques from his talk.
    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 - Presentation: Functions (Part 2) - Map, Reduce, Filter
    6:45-8:00pm - Hack Night, open discussion
    Your topic here? Contact us to speak!
    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, 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 you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting to sign up!
