August 30, 2013 @ 10:38:38

The Nomad PHP (virtual) user group has announced their speaker for the November 2013 meeting - Ed Finkler talking about the problems that come with having "more code" in your applications.

In this talk I'll extend the concepts to other languages we work with in web development, establishing these core principles: Learn languages, not frameworks, build small things, less code is better than more, and create and use simple, readable code We'll cover how following these principles makes you a better developer, and makes the job of maintaining and verifying your code much easier.

PHP Interview With Corey Ballou Co-Organizer Of The Queen City PHP Meetup Group
July 23, 2013 @ 09:47:53

On the 7PHP.com site today there's a new community interview posted - this time with Corey Ballou, the co-organizer of the Queen City PHP user group (and upcoming Nomad PHP speaker). They talk some about his background, how he got involved in the community and some of his thoughts on PHP on general.

In this edition I talked with Corey Ballou who is the co-organizer of the Queen City PHP meetup group. @cballou has also been working as a developer with the cool mojoLive team. To be noted that Corey will be the speaker for the next, 3rd NomadPHP Online Talk this week and he will be presenting "Creating Realtime Applications with PHP and Websockets". I now invite you to learn from his experience and get to know his personality.

They talk about Corey's early start with computers and how he evolved from things like VBScript and Perl up to PHP and other web technologies. He touches on some of the good and bad he sees about the language and some of his top advice to beginners. He also recommends some other resources and books to check out to gain even more knowledge. He finishes off the interview with a suggestion to all of those "on the sidelines" out there - get involved, speak and become a real proponent of the language!

Speaker & Attendee Feedback Of The Previous Laravel4 Talk Of NomadPHP June 2013
July 08, 2013 @ 09:42:12

7PHP.com has a new post that shares some of the feedback - from both the speaker and other attendees - of the latest Nomad PHP meeting featuring Phil Sturgeon talking on Laravel 4.

Previously on thursday 27th July 2013 (8pm CDT), NomadPHP hosted their 2nd talk which was about "Laravel 4" - the speaker being Phil Sturgeon. I also announced my 2nd free ticket giveaway for this online event - a generosity awesomely made possible by the ever-awesome @NomadPHP organizer; Cal Evans. In this short (as compared to the previous one) article, the spotlight will be on the speaker and an attendee. I'm thankful to both for their responses and sharing their NomadPHP experience with us. We'll also have a quick (as in very quick) glance at the ticket winners.

The article starts with some of the feedback from Phil and his observations from the speaker side of things. This is followed by the attendee perspective from Don Gilbert, a maintainer of the Joomla framework. They talk about the goods and bads of the presentation and things they think the virtual user group could improve on in the future.

Nomad PHP July 2013:
Corey Ballou - Creating Realtime Applications with PHP and Websockets
July 04, 2013 @ 13:19:26

The Nomad PHP virtual user group has announce the latest meeting - this time it's Corey Ballou presenting about realtime applications and WebSockets in July.

We'll start out with a brief introduction to WebSockets to get everyone up to speed before jumping in to high level scaffolding code of the frontend and backend implemetations (the spec). Once the groundwork has been laid, I'll introduce you to a both client and server side tools for implementing WebSockets directly in your PHP code. From here, we'll jump into multiple interactive demos of increasing complexity utilizing the open source Ratchet library. I'll walk through the source code of the first two intro demos to give you a better sense of how to structure your own WebSockets applications

If time allows, I'll run through a complex demo where I introduced WebSockets to an existing CRUD todo application. The last demo is not for the faint of heart. By the end of the presentation, you'll walk away with access to a github repository containing all of the presentation slides and demos ready to run yourself!

You can pick up your tickets for this meeting (happening July 25th) directly from the Nomad PHP site.

June 2013 - Phil Sturgeon, "Laravel 4 Yet Another Framework- but different"
June 13, 2013 @ 12:35:35

For those out there that don 't have a local PHP user group, you should check out the Nomad PHP virtual user group. It meets once a month online and this month's topic is an introduction to Laravel 4 (from Phil Sturgeon). It'll be happening at 8pm CDT on the 27th.

An introduction into Laravel 4, the Yet Another Framework that does things a little differently. See how it leverages Symfony components for its core along with multiple other Composer components instead of building everything from scratch. Learn how despite the complex Symfony underbelly Laravel 4 still gives a slick API to ease the learning curve of the framework to more of an accessibility ramp. After this run through of Laravel 4 you'll be psyched to trial it out, no matter what your usual "go to framework" is.

If you'd like to attend, tickets for the meetin g(to help cover the costs of the virtual meeting tools) will only run you $10 USD. If you're interested, check out this month's meeting page for more details.

Nomad PHP - the Virtual PHP User Group
April 09, 2013 @ 12:41:21

If you've wanted to get involved in a PHP user group but either don't have one in your area or travel so much it makes it impractical, there's a new group that might interest you - Nomad PHP. It's a virtual user group that you can attend. It's still in the beginning stages, but you can express your interest and get more details as they come.

Tired of seeing all the great speakers other PHP User Groups are hearing and lamenting that there is no group near you? Nomad PHP User Group is just for you. We meet on-line, so you can participate wherever you are [and] will have well known as well as brand new speakers. You'll also get access to the recordings to review later.

They point out that this isn't intended as a replacement for a local user group if you have one - interaction with peers and being a part of the community is still important. This is just an alternative. If this sounds interesting, head over and enter your information to be contacted with more info about the group.
