Las Vegas PHP User Group - LVPHP.org

About Us

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.

Upcoming Meetups

VIM high level overview & WooCommerce/Wordpres­s setup, testing, optimizing

This meetup will feature Matthew Kosolofski who is a PHP Developer @ Selling Source and an avid VIM enthusiast. He will talking about some basic and advanced features of VIM such as debugging, macros, and more. This is sure to be an informative talk to allow you to edit code on your production server, because who needs an IDE anyway? Just kidding! Don't edit live code, test your code, eat your wheaties, and keep learning kids.

I'll be doing a talk on using Wordpress and WooCommerce to create a killer e-commerce platform. I'll show you some of my techniques for setting it up, how I test, and optimize the site for high performance. I'm not a wordpress/woocommerce expert but will gladly answer any questions I can relating to this simple e-commerce platform.

Free pizza and drink will be provided by Branson Real with TekSystems. You can reach him at breal@teksystems.com if you are looking for a tech job.

We will also be giving away a free license key to PHPStorm sponsored by JetBrains.

Stay fresh!
