Brian Moon (of dealnews) has officially taken the lead of the local PHP user group for North Alabama:
As of today I have taken over organizing the PHP/MySQL meetup.com group for north Alabama. Anyone willing to drive into town is welcome to come. Our first meetup that I will organize will be Monday, December 3, 2007. I will be posting directions and more info at Meetup.com once they grant me access.
The group is having a meetup tonight being sponsored by Codango - no word yet on the presentations, but several have already RVSPed to attend. If you're in the Huntsville area and want to attend, head over to the Meetup page for the group and let them know.
