Today, the Bangalore PHP User Group had a meeting. The meetup.com site reports that sixty eight people attended the meeting. The venue was at Microsoft. The increasing participation of Microsoft in PHP conferences and meetings have taken many by surprise. Microsoft were kind enough to offer free Pizza for all the attendees.
They have given me a copy of Windows 7 Release Candidate which expires on June 1, 2010. If time permits, I will sure try to install it as a virtual guest.
The attendees. Vinu Thomas, the event organizer is seen standing.
Janakiram presented “Cloud Computing For PHP Developers”. It was nice to see someone making an interesting presentation without slides. Janakiram used a text editor and typed the bullet points in big fonts as he spoke about them. It was indeed a good presentation.
I gave a talk on “Building RESTful applications with PHP”.
I have uploaded my slides “Building Restful Applications Using PHP” so that you can view it online or download the file.
At the meeting, I have pitched the idea of starting a PHP podcast. Do you think podcasting is a good idea? We are looking for a panel of volunteer hosts. If you can join us or can recommend someone let us know.
