John Congdon starts a discussion on PHP User Groups

April 11, 2011


Over on his blog, John Condgon has posted a very short question that he’s hoping to get some feedback on. The post is titled “PHP User Groups (Orlando and Daytona Beach)> and in it he discusses two formats that his PUG can adopt and asks you, the reader, for your input.

The East Central Florida PHP User Group (Daytona Beach area) is new/restarting. They have only had one meeting so far, and finally scheduled another a few months later. They seem to be more geared towards teaching new PHP developers. While we haven’t done anything so far, they are leaning towards a mentor/student type of group.

He also describes how the Orlando, FL – US PUG is organized and then asks you for your input. One of the great things about the PHP community is that we have a thriving network of PUGs, the world over. Help John add one more to that list. Click on over, give it a read and leave his your thoughts.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC's. For the past 10 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is currently based in Nashville, TN and is gainfully unemployed as the Chief Marketing Officer of Blue Parabola, LLC. Cal is happily married to wife 1.28, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Day Camp 4 Developers
