    UPHPU LinkedIn Group 

    I am excited to announce that we now have a LinkedIn Group for UPHPU members. You can add a note to your LinkedIn profile that states that you are a member and a UPHPU badge will appear. Join the UPHPU LinkedIn group here. Please note that I will have to approve each, so be patient as it might taken a few minutes. Please also note that if you want the UPHPU badge to appear on your profile, you will have to edit your profile, scroll to the bottom where groups are, click “settings” next to the UPHPU badge, and then change “Displaying the group logo to non-group members:” to “Yes” and save the changes.

    SQL and PHP 

    For our September meeting, Mac Newbold will be lecturing on SQL and PHP! Last year’s meet was one of the highest attended.

    Mac Newbold is the owner of Code Greene, a highly successful web development company. The company primarily uses PHP as its coding language. Mac also is chief architect of Gradefix.com and a former contributor to Flyspray bug resolution.

    Mac has Bachelor’s (2001) and Master’s (2004/2005) Degrees in Computer Science from the Univerisity of Utah. He spent over 4 years working on the Emulab Network Testbed system and web site, doing web and database programming and development, as well as research and development for their large cluster of computers and their web-driven automated network configuration tools, and has done consulting for other sites using their software. Since 2001 he has done computer consulting for a wide variety of clients, and currently focuses on improving design and implementation techniques for database-driven dynamic e-commerce web sites.

    In addition to Mac’s topic, he will also be speaking with members about potential job opportunities with his company. Two old computers will also be given away at this event; great for those interested in tinkering around and learning.

    Last, we will do audio streaming again! Last time was very successful. We will issue out the information the day before so those of you who live far away can still participate in Mac’s presentation.

    Download an audio recording of this presentation.

      The lunch was a great hit. I really enjoyed lunch with some great people. We talked, laughed and talked some more. I look forward to having lunch again with some more members. I think we should have some pics posted in a short time.
