Las Vegas PHP Group: It’s Alive

As promised, a couple of days ago the LV PHP User Group had its first meeting. The purpose of the meeting was to see what kind of interest there was and to gather some ideas for future meetings. We had a pretty good turnout for our first meeting. I think around 20 or so people attended and we mingled and talked amongst ourselves for around 2 hours.

We are going to be having another meeting in mid to late may. The current plan is that two of us will be doing a couple of short talks, I will be talking about testing and quality assurance. We also talked about getting involved in the PHP TestFest project. The last thing we decided is that the next meeting will be in a ‘quieter’ environment. PT’s Pub worked well for a meet and greet type of meeting but would be a tad loud for any kind of presenting. It also forcluded some people from attending due to the atmosphere.

When I hear more info about dates I will post it. For those of you that live nowhere near Vegas, maybe you can use us as a way to writeoff a vacation as a business expense? 😀

  1. Hi Mike – I’m looking for a senior-level LAMP developer in Las Vegas to work on a contract project, possibly leading to more. Can we talk? If you weren’t interested in this gig, I could really use your help in trying to find someone talented, as I’m new to the idea. I’m not a recruiter, I work on a small team of people who do development of large-scale Web properties, Facebook apps, iPhone webapps, and some other stuff. I signed up for the PHP Meetup group, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to make the next meeting.

    I couldn’t find your e-mail address on the site, and it looks like you’ve got in your RSS feed (hahaha). Please feel free to email me at the address I left in this comment.

    Thanks for your time – Michael
