April SF PHP Meetup – symfony

Wow, I just realized how long it has been since I last posted here. It has been a crazy few weeks. Everything from setting up the baby furniture to fixing my rental condo, taxes to layoffs at CNET and more. I’m beat.

Anway to the topic at hand…

April’s PHP Meetup is looking like it will have another great turn out. The group just keeps growing and growing. Our average attendance for the last two months have been over 70 people! I still have a hard time believing that this many shy, techie geeks like me actually show up. :P

April’s topic will be run by Dustin Whittle from Yahoo! and will be about the symfony framework. He’ll be doing a brief overview of the framework and then walk people through setting up a site. If you’re planning on attending, bring your laptop and code along with us.
