In a new post to his blog Jeremy Kendall has announced the launch of a new user group in the Memphis, Tennessee area providing a place for PHP developers in that area (the mid-south) to gather.
It's my pleasure to announce the formation of Memphis PHP, a PHP user group serving Memphis, TN and the mid-south. The goal of Memphis PHP is to grow and nurture an active PHP community in the local area. It's going to take a lot of work to get Memphis PHP off the ground, but having an active community of PHP developers in Memphis is long overdue. The hard work will be more than worth it, and I'm going to need your help to accomplish that goal.
He mentions some of the exposure to the PHP community via conferences and how it inspired him, especially a recent session, to start up a user group in his area. You can find out more about the group from their website - MemphisPHP.org but here's some of the basics: they'll meet on the 4th Thursday around 6:30pm and the first meeting will actually be a road trip to Nashville to meet the user group up there.
