Speakers Wanted

Posted by jpm on November 12, 2006

As it is usual for our group, every month we have presentations about topics related to Web development and PHP and MySQL in particular. We usually have two presentations, one about libraries, practices or tricks on how to improve your productivity and another presentation on actual tools, such as IDEs and database administration tools.

If you have an idea for a session for an upcoming meeting, send it over! Presentations don’t need to be complicated affairs, and two-way sharing of ideas and experiences is the goal.

Get in touch through a comment if you wish to participate.

November Meeting Presentations

Posted by jpm on November 12, 2006

Bryan Alsdorf (Manager of Support Systems with MySQL AB) gave a great presentation on the most important features coming around with the new 5.1 release of MySQL. Lots of very interesting and useful features are included, so download the presentation and send comments.

Kevin Carpenter of UptimeData.com did a session about form validation with JavaScript. There was a great amount of interaction with the members of the group, and we also talked about using AJAX to merge form validation in JavaScript with the required server-side validation done through PHP. Kevin’s demonstration page is available online.
