The #php.thinktank channel on the Freenode IRC Network is starting up a series of "discussion times" with their first session happening November 17th at 3-5pm CST. The discussion will be about the Standard PHP Library (SPL) extension included in recent PHP 5 releases.
In an effort to get more participation in discussions within the channel, we're going to try something new: having a regular discussion-driven event. If all goes well, we'll alternate moderators and topics and keep the time slot.
To get information about connecting to Freenode, check out their website for the addresses or just point your IRC client to irc.freenode.net and you'll get routed to a server. Then just "/j #php.thinktank" and you'll be there!
