Zend Developer Zone:
PHP Gains in the TIOBE Programming Community Index, & takes 2nd in the JIPLFOG
April 06, 2006 @ 14:25:18

Back in 2004, PHP was named number one language of 2004. Since then, it's hovered in the top ten, maintaining its popularity and ranking, including a move up from 5th place to 4th (as mentioned on the Zend Developer Zone).

The TIOBE Programming Community Index has been updated for April 2006 showing their view on the status of programming languages in the development community. PHP moves up a spot from 5th to 4th. The long-in-the-tooth C fades back a bit relinquishing 1st place to Java, while C++ gains on its brethren with PHP biting on its heels (a margin of 0.02 between their percentages). PHP has a higher climb rate so expect another big move in the coming year.

For those that are wondering "why should I care?" about this random index? The post mentions how they come up with their numbers. It's mainly a popularity contest, but it's useful for seeing which way the public sways. The post also mentions thatm while it's one way to check the popularity, slightly altering the search parameters can give dramatically different results.

Atlanta PHP Users Group:
February Meeting Reminder (2nd @ 7pm)
February 02, 2006 @ 07:02:40

The Atlanta PHP Users Group has posted a reminder about their February meeting happening tonight, the 2nd at 7pm in Tucker, Georgia.

Our February meeting will start with a new short session of PHP Tips & Tricks. This will become a regular tradition at our meetings, and we hope it encourages and helps newcomers and seasoned PHP programmers alike. See Chris's reminder to bring your Tips & Tricks: http://www.atlphp.org/node/120

Following the Tips & Tricks session, we will dive into another new segment that will surface from time-to-time at meetings throughout the year: PHP Topics. PHP Topics will be a programmer-to-programmer open discussion forum about some topic related to the PHP community. We'll do this on a semi-regular basis (i.e. once a quarter). If it turns out to be a popular segment, we may set aside some time for a short discussion at each meeting.

You can get the full details for the meeting here including directions to the meeting place.
