PHP Women:
A letter to all members of the PHP community (The Ada Initiative)
October 29, 2012 @ 09:51:07

As Lineke Kerckhoffs-Willems has posted to the PHP Women site today, the Ada Initiative, an organization that supports women in technology, is looking for donations to help improve the work they can do for women all around the world.

Over a year ago I first heard about the Ada Initiative, an organisation to support women in open technology and culture. This is exactly why PHPWomen was founded, only we narrow it down to women within the PHP community, because that is our level of expertise. However, we are an organisation based on volunteers and therefore, we often struggle with finding the time to do more. Luckily, The Ada Initiative isn't based on volunteers, but on people working full time to reach their goal, our goal. We share their vision: "a world in which women are equal and welcome participants in open source software, open data, and open culture" and therefore we support the organisation.

As they are a non-profit, they can use all of the financial support they get to help further their cause. There's one catch to donating - the campaign ends tomorrow, October 31st. If you want to contribute to the cause (they've already collected over $73,000) you can do it here.

We know you care about women in the PHP community, and technology as a whole, as much as we do. Donating to the Ada Initiative is an easy way to help and our community is based around helping others. Will you donate too?

All of us at php|architect want to encourage you to join us in giving to the Red Cross to support their relief efforts in Japan.

PHP Women:
A Cookbook (both PHP and Food Kinds)
February 12, 2009 @ 09:32:56

The PHP Women are trying to put together a different sort of "cookbook" than most of the community might be used to. It combines two meanings of the word and gives both PHP "recipes" and actual ones once the book is flipped.

Hi, there has been the idea/concept of a PHPWomen Cookbook being produced. Being Silly thing that I am, I [BinaryKitten] volunteered to collate and produce it. You read the book 1 way and it will all be PHP Recipes. Flip the book over and it will all be culinary recipes.

They're still in the panning stages, so they need feedback from the community as to whether the idea can get off the ground, who might want to contribute to the recipes and what it would take to get it into print and distributed. Have some ideas? let them know! (and no, you don't have to be female to participate)
