Our upcoming meeting in Colorado Springs on June 23rd will be held at the Tek Systems office in Colorado Springs. Maps and directions can be found on our meetings page.

We'll have two presentations on Wednesday. First, Mark Rairdon will present on the Yii framework. Yii is a lightweight framework that Mark has been using on a lot of his recent projects, even replacing Zend Framework in several cases.

Our second presentation will be Zend Framework Modular Project Setup by Chad Robertson.

He'll be covering how using a modular project structure can be beneficial and how to setup the modular project. Time permitted he will do an interactive demo and get some feedback on how to possibly further encapsulate images, css, and javascript code for portability within the project structure easily.

Chad Robertson's Bio:

Chad is a PHP developer with over 10 years of experience in web development and design. In the 90's Chad was introduced to Internet Relay Chat by a high school friend and immediately fell in love with the internet. After learning HTML and designing a few small web pages he immediately dove face first into e-commerce web development in 1999. After spending less than a year pulling most of his missing hair out programming in Perl he discovered PHP and fell in love with the language.

After being self-employed as a web designer/developer for 5 years, he moved from Iowa to take a job in Denver as web developer for a small company. Not until almost 4 years later he was introduced to Object Oriented development with PHP and Zend Framework. Having made the mistakes many other developers have made (and for much longer than most), He is now very devoted to helping others bypass his mistakes in PHP for the better of web development as a whole.

It should be an excellent meeting and I look forward to seeing you there.
