If there's one thing that's consistent about developers, it's that their development environments can be wildly different from the next and still get the job done. There's loads of technology out there that can be integrated into a development platform to get the job done - virtualization, version control, deployment tools and more.This month's meeting will be a more open discussion of development environments in general and some common trends that're showing up in the PHP community.
