Boston PHP

Boston PHP is the fastest growing, and most active tech community in New England. We have been meeting since 2002. We have over 1,000 members, and usually meet every month on a Wednesday. We have a wide range of topics all related to PHP, Web Development, and Open Source technology. All meetings are free, and we encourage everyone to participate and get involved and help grow the PHP community. After each meeting we typically go to a nearby restaurant/bar/pub for more informal discussion. Check out our newsletter! We video all of our meetups. To access our videos, just follow this link.
