Las Vegas PHP User Group -

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

PHP7 by Cal Evans @ Zend & Mike Lively on Managing an open source project.

Cal Evans with Zend will present via webex a private session of PHP7 jumpstart. This will be an hour long run through PHP7 features. This is a great opportunity to learn from the best about the benefits of PHP7.
