Over the weekend, Atlanta PHP launched its brand new Web site and forum. We hope that this new site and forum will allow us to serve our local developer community much more effectively.
Also, something that I've not pointed out in any of the language posted on the Atlanta PHP Web site is that the new forum allows members to get in touch with each other, something the Drupal installation we had did not allow. Members can send private messages or even e-mail to each other using the forum software.
He also notes that he's gone back to Meetup.com and created a group there for PHP developers looking for a group in the Atlanta, Georgia area, but it's mainly just there to funnel developers back to the main site.
