For those in the St. Catharines area of Ontario looking for a group of like-minded PHP developers to hang out with, you're in luck. Mike Cousins has helped to start up PHP Niagara, a group for PHP and web development fans/professionals in the area.

Their first meeting is happening December 6th in St. Catharines at the Coffee Culture on St. Paul Street at 7pm. It won't be a formal meeting, just a "get to know each other" kind of meetup with planning for the future. Because of the venue, space is limited, so be sure to RSVP early if you'd like to attend. You can also follow the group on Twitter for their latest updates!
