For our January meeting, Justin Carmony will cover PHP fundamentals with a presentation on reading the fabulous manual. For a new person to PHP, reading the documentation can be a daunting task. Even worse when you have legions of other developers screaming the acronym “RTFM!” Hopefully we can shed some light on how to get the most out of PHP Documentation, how to search it, how to understand it, and how to get help if the documentation doesn’t answer your questions. Justin Carmony will be giving the presentation, and will leave time for questions. You’re not alone in learning PHP, let the Utah PHP Usergroup help you.
