The Las Vegas PHP Users Group is a group dedicated to PHP developers learning from and teaching each others. Many PHP developers are experts in one segment or another. This group is an opportunity for all of us to teach what we know well and learn something new. All skill levels are sought after. If you are looking to teach, learn, network, or just mingle, join the group and participate on the adventure.
This is the monthly meeting of the user group. There will be one or more presentations on pertinent topics in PHP development. There will also be announcements regarding pertinent current developments and event in the PHP world. More information regarding the event will be added is the date draws near.
Joe will be talking about Behat, an awesome end-to-end feature testing system.
Justin is a full time CakePHP developer at Loadsys, who in his spare time backpacks, reads (a lot) and on occasion tweets at @jtyost2.
He will be speaking about Iterators: A Super Powerful Tool in the PHP SPL Iterators a super powerful tool in the PHP SPL that lets you iterate over basically anything and do pretty much anything you want at the same time. If you have never used iterators before, you will want to after this talk.
This is the time to come ask questions, squash a bug or get PHP setup on your machine. Bring your code, ask questions and help others troubleshoot problems. If you're an experienced PHP developer, this is a great opportunity to get group feedback on design and coding style from your peers.
Most times we'll be diving deeper into topics covered in the regular meet up two weeks earlier.
This is an external event and not sponsored by the PHPUG.
On Nov 1st through the 2nd there will be a 36 hour hackathon right here in Las Vegas at the Aria. This event looks badass with some big names in up and coming finance.
