    We are looking at starting a Salt Lake Javascript Users group and thought the PHP community might be interested. We are thinking about meeting in the downtown area on the first Thursday of every month. Come let us know if you would be interested in joining us. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ujsug

      Is this different than the http://utahjs.com/ group then?

        It will be a different chapter, but we will all be in the same group (if that makes sense). We will be on the same website. There seemed to be enough interest in having a meeting in salt lake. It looks like we will be moving to the second or 4th Thursday so as not to conflict with the Utah County meeting.

      I’d be interested

      I’d be quite interested in attending a Salt Lake based group. As long at it’s Thursday after about 06:30 or so, the time sounds good as well.

    Last October I had an opportunity to take my consulting company from just a small part time gig to a full time company. The downside is in doing this it moved me to North Carolina. So the reason for this post and how it pertains. I really enjoy being part of this group for the many years that I have been. However I am now attempting to locate groups like this in North Carolina. Anyone have any ideas of good places to look for groups like this in a new area, or even have suggestions on how I could start a similar group to this here in North Carolina?

    Glad to see a group here in Utah that supports php. I’ll mark my calendar, looking forward to see what it’s all about.

    I’m a student at BYU right now and a friend and I have come up with an idea for a website that we think could go really far. We’ve been struggling to find people skilled enough who are willing to give it a try with us though. One of my friends suggested that I ask on here and see if anyone is up to it. We would only be able to offer a percentage of any future profits instead of a set pay, but there is no guarantee of anything since it’s just an idea right now… Anyway, let me know if you want to join in. Or if I’m even posting this in the right place…

      “We would only be able to offer a percentage of any future profits instead of a set pay, but there is no guarantee of anything since it’s just an idea right now…”

      I can’t count how many times I’ve heard these exact words. What this really actually means is “our idea, which we were too shy to even mention here publicly, doesn’t seem to be interesting to investors, so we’re just going to wing it.”

      It never actually works out, and I wouldn’t recommend anyone (friend or not) jumps on board with this work. If they can’t find funding, it wasn’t a good business model in the first place. Not being able to even mention what the work is also means there’s a lack of confidence that this is actually even an innovative project since there’s worry that “anyone could jump in front of us, it doesn’t actually take anyone special to do this.”

    So one can learn PHP on their own I suppose, but where is the best place in Utah to take a class on PHP development? UVU? SLCC? somewhere else? All recommendations are appreciated.

      Hi Larry,

      I’ve taken classes at the U and SLCC. Frankly, I would recommend getting an account at lynda.com. You cane learn LOTS of things there for one low price. The videos, tutorials, and example files are all excellent, and they also teach some best practices. All the PHP classes I’ve found are very slow and not very good at heading you in the direction of real life application of PHP.

      I hope this helps!

      Tony =)

      If you’re just getting started, I really enjoyed these tutorials-Dive into PHP. They don’t go too deep into the language but they give a good foundation. From there I would check out the PHP Manual.

    Some of you have come across raifbot on the #uphpu IRC channel. I’ve put a site that briefly describes all of the available commands: http://raifbot.wordpress.com/
