As New York PHP Community enters our sixth year, we're pleased to kick off the new year with one of the oldest and respected PHP projects - The Horde Project
. This January we're pleased to continue our framework review series with Horde's founder, Chuck Hagenbuch.
You probably know that Horde does webmail. But Horde also provides a framework for building applications. Chuck Hagenbuch will demonstrate a mix of ORM, prototype + script.aculo.us, and mapping APIs that quickly assemble into an application using Horde (call it a mashup if you must). We'll also demonstrate building standalone pages that incorporate content from an existing Horde installation.
Chuck Hagenbuch founded the Horde Project in 1998 and has been working with PHP and the world of web development ever since. He is currently an independent consultant, and has provided professional services to high-profile PHP users such as PayPal and Portugal Telecom.
Thanks to IBM for providing a great presentation space with seating for plenty.
As a service to our community, New York PHP user group meetings are always free and open to the public.
