After getting such positive feedback about the new meeting program, we will be continuing with it this month.
Each meeting includes a monthly review of previous PHundamental Threads
, a technique, site or product demo, and a feature presentation. Meetings start at 6:30pm sharp.
- 6:30 PHundamental Threads
Join the PHP Best Practices team for discussion, review and Q&A on this month's thread, "Site Structure."
- 6:45 Product/Technique/Special Feature
NYPHP developer Andrew Yochum follows last month's presentation on templates with the cutting edge solution, PHPTAL.
- 7:00 Feature Presentation, gd Library and PHP Image Manipulation
PHP is not limited to creating just HTML output. It can also be used to create and manipulate image files in a variety of different image formats, including gif, png, jpg, wbmp, and xpm. For this month's presentation, NYPHP pixel jockey Jeff Knight will talk about using the GD library and the bundled version in PHP. Topics will include installation and configuration, a discussion of the image functions themselves, and related topics like goofy patent laws and basic color models and theory.
- 7:45 Q&A and Recap
Join us for open Q&A, including dinner and drinks after the meeting.
As always this meeting is free and open to the public.
