I just created the Columbia PHP Meetup Group, something we have been wanting to do for a while. The inaugural meeting is going to be held at our headquarters on Mon, 05 Mar 2007:
For our first PHP meetup in Columbia, we're going to be hosting lightning talks, 5-minute talks on anything that you think other PHP enthusiasts might be interested in. We've got a great meeting space at OmniTI and will be ordering plenty of pizza for everyone.
With free food and friendly people like Wez, George, Laura, and Theo around, it should be a fun night.
We have a mailing list for those who are interested in the group.
I hope to see you on the 5th!
