PHP Groups networks PHP user groups into a tighter community, provides a means to share information and resources among its community members, and aids in the formation of new PHP user groups.
PHP Groups is a communication tool, allowing PHP user group leaders to connect with one another. For now, we provide a mailing list and wiki to facilitate this communication. More tools will follow in the future.
One of this group's projects is to draft a handbook for PHP user groups, complete with information about starting a group, planning meetings, contacting publishing companies for books, looking for sponsorship, etc. This information is drawn from the experiences, successes, and failures of all the user groups in our network, and it needs your help to make it complete.
Since PHP Groups is dedicated to providing a means for user group organizers to communicate, collaborate, and share, we provide a wiki where this kind of exchange may take place. If you need editing access to the wiki, please let us know on the mailing list.
The PHP project graciously hosts our mailing list. You may subscribe to the list through the news server or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are irregular meetups of usergroup-organizers on conferences. Check out what happened there.
