Posted by jpm on February 21, 2006

Here are the March meeting details:

  • Brent Clements of Digicution, Inc. will talk about the MVC pattern of development that Ruby on Rails is based on. He will go over what it is, what it means for PHP development and how it ties into everything.
  • We will also have our usual Tips & Tricks session at the end of the meeting, with good tips about interesting PHP components, MySQL tools, Firefox extensions, AJAX/JavaScript libraries and other web development related topics.

    The meeting was great. The MySQL Backup discussion was very helpful. It was too bad that Brent wasn’t able to give the MVC/RoR presentation, but the Zend Studio walk through was good. I’ve been interested in trying it our for a while and will give the free trial a workout. I’m looking forward to the next meeting.

    Hello, sorry for not showing up but I went out of the country to England at the last minute for client business. I’d like to give this talk at another upcoming meeting. I will come to the next few meetings first to introduce myself to the PHP User group so you can all become familiar with me.
