The folks over at 31interactive Ltd are recruiting for a PHP developer. If you're serious about your career and developing your skills, then this so the job for you.
This month, we mostly open the floor to new speakers with no minimum talk length lightning sessions, seriously - if you only have 1 slide you can still give a talk.
The session will open with a talk by Tim from Ardmore, with a talk on getting involved with and contributing to the open source community.
Come prepared with your own 5-15min talk and have your say on any topic related to web development. maybe you discovered a new library on Packagist you think we should all know about. Maybe you want to have your 2 cents worth on the 11 lines of code that brought down NPM - whatever it is, if you have the slides, you can have the floor.
To keep transitions between speakers simple, please bring your presentation on a USB stick in either PDF, Keynote, HTML or, if you really must, Powerpoint and a laptop will be available on the night.
As usual there will be opportunity to catchup and discuss any and all things after the talks are finished, The Duke of York is the usual venue for that.
December meetup is on Thursday 10th Dec
Messaging with Twilio & Laravel
Whats New with Laravel 5
January 2015 saw the release of the eagerly anticipated Laravel 5 framework, which comes bundled with a whole host of new features. Exploring some of the more interesting features, we’ll discuss how Laravel is deliberately trying to challenge developers to think harder about their architecture to create better applications.
Over the course of his career, @MinusDarren has been lucky enough to work with some of the largest companies in Northern Ireland..., delivering a mix of digital strategy and hands-on web solutions. In August 2014, he co-founded MINUS40, a new Belfast-based digital agency, where he acts as CTO.
Did you fix a problem recently? did you fix a bug, find a new (to you) useful library on github, maybe you discovered a cool jQuery plugin that saved you 2 days of development.... Thing is - everybody knows something, everybody can share something. It is the collective sharing that makes a community stronger.
We're opening the floor for 5-10min talks to anyone that can bring along an idea. Send us a tweet to @phpbelfast with your #TenMinTalk title so we can get a running order for the evening.
Here's the big secret... You don't need to be an expert to stand up and talk, but by doing so you become more knowledgable in your chosen talk subject.
To find us, head in the main entrance to the University of Ulster (Belfast Campus) on York Street. More directions can be found at:
Once inside someone you’re there for PHPBelfast, they’ll give you access and directions to the room. You need to go up to floor C in the lift, turn left out of the lift, 82C02 is the first door on the right.
Next Meetup - Thu 10th April at Blick Studios.
