PHP User Groups

We want to network PHP user groups into a tighter community, provide a means to share information and resources among our community members, and aid in the formation of new PHP user groups.


One of this group's projects is 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.

Contribute to the wiki

Since we're 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.
