Terry Chay Speaking at SF PHP Meetup in February
January 23, 2008 @ 10:21:00

Terry Chay, a popular speaker at many of the PHP conferences and photog to the geek chic crowd in San Francisco, will be speaking at the upcoming PHP Meetup for the SF PHP group. He'll be giving a talk titled "OOps! The PHP Fear and Loathing Guide to OO Design".

How does the PHP developer in the trenches create powerful object-orientation code? By doing what the PHP's architects did, of course: cherry picking the most pragmatic of OOP principles and patterns! This talk is targeted at the PHP developer who has basic knowledge of PHP OOP syntax but wants to find out where OOP principles can fit into a program.

If you'd like to attend, head over to the meetup page for the event and let them know you're coming. It'll be happening at the CNet Network offices February 7th @ 7pm.

New PHP Statistics
February 05, 2007 @ 08:49:00

DynamicWebPages.de has posted their new statistics for PHP usage in the community for this past month:

After the small decrease in the last month, PHP made it back up easily. For the first time since April 2006, the 20 million mark on the number of domains has been passed. In contrast to the previous month that means a jump of nearly 800,000 domains. The number of IP addresses, on which PHP is installed, also has numbers worth checking out. With 1,332,514 IP addresses on record, this month's numbers are the highest conditions since September 2004.

You can check out the graph and the statistics for the last year in their statistics page of their site.

Richard Miller's Blog:
UPHPU meeting on custom 404 pages
February 22, 2006 @ 06:49:49

From Richard Miller's blog today, there's a new post with content from the Utah PHP Users Group meeting that's just passed (Feb. 2006) on the topic of custom 404 pages.

When you try to visit a web page that doesn't exist, the server usually returns a 404 error message - "Page Not Found". At the Utah PHP Users group meeting last Thursday, Mac Newbold presented on custom 404 pages. Custom 404 pages can help maintain your website branding, help you fix broken links, and help your users find something useful when they don't find what they're looking for.

Custom 404 pages are even more powerful when you combine them with PHP. I certainly didn't expect the flood of ideas that Mac presented for using custom 404 pages.

Among the suggestions of things to do with the error pages are things like: sending an email when someone gets a 404, search the site for something similar, use it as a redirect for old to new URLs, and more.

1st Tampa Bay PHP User Group Meeting!
February 03, 2006 @ 06:43:41

Davey Shafik has this new post today with information about the first Tampa Bay area PHP User Group meeting.

To everybody in the Tampa Bay Area, the Tampa Bay PHP User Group is having its first meeting in just under two weeks.

Brian Fertig whom I have never met, but in our brief e-mails this week seems like a pretty cool guy has gone to the effort of getting things set up for us.

The meeting is going to be held February 17th at 7pm at a Golden Corral there in Tampa. If you'd like to attend, you can RSVP on the Meetup page (so they know how much space to reserve) as well as get more information about the location...

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.
