Springfield PHP Meetup | Learn How to Code

August 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is a free event!

Springfield PHP is a group for people in the Springfield, MA area interested in learning, exploring, and sharing knowledge about the PHP software language, and related website technology. People of all backgrounds and proficiency levels are encouraged to attend.

Why are you doing this:
I’ve been a software engineer focused on websites ( the PHP software language ) for 8+ years. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to and speak at conferences all around the world, and have amassed a wealth of knowledge in that time. I want to bring the hands-on conference experience that has helped me so much home, for free.

What is PHP:
PHP runs about 80% of the websites you visit today. Mark Zuckerberg wrote the original Facebook using PHP and another tech. It’s a good language to know!

In Springfield, median household income is $22,006 lower than the median Massachusetts household income and $4,957 less than the US median household income. The average salary for a software engineer is $84,023.

What you need to bring:
– A working laptop (windows, mac, Linux ok)
– an open mind
