Wow, look at the date on the last post on this site!  Anyone looking might think the group is dead.  It’s time for a bit of a revival!

If you find a PHP or web-application/development related article and would like to share it, please post it to the mailing list.  When one of us site admins has a chance, we’ll link it up here.  Same if you want to write an article or present to the group.

Some of the recent topics discussed at meetings include Twilio (telephony API), jQuery, PHP5.3, and frameworks.

How about topics you’d like to see/present at the meetings?  Post ’em here or to the mailing list.

June 24th Meeting

Those of you who didn’t come missed an extremely fun and informative meeting. We upgraded azphp.org to the latest wordpress and in the process fixed a bunch of broken items from the old site.

We learned how to easily install or upgrade an instance of wordpress using subversion. Doing so via svn allows you to easily upgrade or switch between wordpress versions (tags) without mucking about with tarballs and ftp.

All in all, a good meeting. Now, off to Boulders on Broadway for the usual foodstuffs.
