Suggestions for a University Talk Covering a PHP Introduction
August 30, 2012 @ 12:09:04

In this new post to Reddit, the author asks the community for suggestions for a talk they're giving at a university to cover the PHP language and some of its major features.

I've been asked to give a 1.5-hour talk to university students about PHP. What helpful information should I not miss to impart? Little help please. I plan to name the talk "Why PHP?" to give an introduction of the language and give reasons why it's a good/bad career path. I'm also asked to show a short demo and show some past projects. [...] What would be really helpful facts, tips, etc that I can impart to the students?

Suggestions in the comments include:

  • PHP performance
  • The accessibility of the language
  • Popular sites that currently use it
  • The wide community
  • Corporate usage

Ben Ramsey's Blog:
Congrats Costa Rica PHP!
February 01, 2008 @ 11:09:00

Ben Ramsey says congratulations to the Costa Rica PHP group on having their first meeting with 37 developers in attendance.

It sounds like they have a very active and vibrant PHP developer community in Costa Rica, and they've found two very supportive universities that have offered to host their meetings and events. I wish that every PHP user group could find sponsors willing to provide computer labs and even bring in outside speakers!

According to the Costa Rica PHP website they had a wonderful response from local developers and found them all eager to contribute however they could. They even have the support of two local universities where they can meet/do work in their labs (even bring in speakers from other countries).

Announcing the PHP Unconference Hamburg
April 03, 2007 @ 09:48:00

Markus Wolff has posted an official announcement about a new event happening in Hamburg - a PHP Unconference put on by the PHP Usergroup Hamburg.

Today I have a little different blog entry for you: On behalf of the PHP Usergroup Hamburg I'm announcing the first PHP Unconference in Hamburg, Germany! The event will take place on May 5th and 6th, at the facilities of the local University (which kindly acts as a co-organizer of the event).

The idea behind the "unconference" is that only one track of talks with really be given in one of the three rooms, but more spontaneous talks in the other rooms are encouraged. Entry will cost 20 Euro (with another 20 getting you lunch for each day) and students at the university will get in free. Rooms will not be provided, so those attending without a place to stay will need to find one on their own.

For the latest updates on the conference, be sure to check out their website.
