If you're in the Montgomery County, Maryland area and are a PHP developer looking to reach out and meet others, you should check out this new post from Brandon Savage. He's trying to start up a user group in that area.
There are lots of active, vibrant developer groups in the DC area: DC PHP, Baltimore PHP, and the Frederick Web Tech group. The DC PHP Beverage Subgroup meets monthly in Northern Virginia. But in the middle between all these groups lies Montgomery County, Maryland. In that area live hundreds of developers who struggle to reach any of the developer groups in the area on a weeknight. It’s time to build them something of their own.
His focus is the Montgomery County area so as not to directly take away from any of the other groups in the area people already attend. If you're interested in a group in that area, leave him a comment or hit him up on Twitter.
