At the recent Lone Star PHP conference in Dallas, Texas PHP Women members Davey Shafik, Elizabeth Smith, Michelle Sanver and Matt Frost presented the inaugural version of their PHPBridge introductory curriculum. Davey has posted about the experience as an instructor at the event.
Last weekend at the fantastic Lone Star PHP 2014, I (and 3 other awesome people) presented the inaugural PHPBridge tutorial. You can read more about how that went on the PHPWomen blog.

He looks at some of the formation of the training, based on the popular RailsBridge sessions, and some of the work that was done to translate it over to the world of PHP. He talks about some of the foundational ideas behind the training and some of the steps the attendees follow (and discover) along the way. He notes that he more than considers this initial version a success but mentions a few things that could be improved for later presentations.
