SF PHP Meetup July 2008 – PHP::$unicode->i18n()

Kudos to Mariano for taking the lead while I’m out on paternity leave (I’m going to write about that ones of these days) and setting up July’s PHP Meetup.  Thanks to an introduction from Terry, Mariano asked Andrei Zmievski to talk about the unicode updates to PHP 6.  Due to the 4th of July, we’ve moved the meetup from it’s normal date/time to Thursday July 10th @ 7pm.  It is still at CNET like usual (thanks to GameSpot.com funding the meetup).

Title: PHP::$unicode->i18n()

PHP 6 brings fully functional and mature Unicode support to the Web world. This talk will cover all the layers of the PHP (bread)/Unicode (butter)/i18n (jam) sandwich. Come and find out how to work with locales, use collation to compare and sort strings, and format numbers, currencies, and dates for any country in the world. Bring your appetite because the toasty goodness is waiting.

When: Thursday, July 10th, 2008 at 7pm
Where: CNET Networks: 235 2nd St, San Francisco, CA  94518

You can RSVP on the SF PHP Meetup’s site or just show up.  I always like it when people RSVP so that I know how much food to buy.  But it isn’t a prereq or anything.

EDIT: I just saw that Terry mentioned PB&J and I like the idea.  So PB&J it is; plus the usual chips, sodas, candy, etc. of course.  🙂

3br/1.5 bath Rohnert Park townhouse for rent

The tenants of my townhouse in Rohnert Park are moving out at the end of July.  Kind of bad timing since work is going to be so busy for the entire month.  🙁  Not really a big deal except they told me the week before that they were planning on staying… ah the perils of renting to college students.

If you’re interested in renting in Rohnert Park, CA shoot me an email or call me and we’ll talk.

1440 Gold Way
Rohnert Park, CA  94518

$1600/month due on the 1st; late on the 5th.
$1650 security deposit.

I prefer no pets, but I’m fairly flexible for small pets like cats.
