On Thursday, Cole Joplin (leader of the local Adobe user group) will be showing us CSS Hat. Cole has some great tips and tricks to share with us.
CSS Hat: Replacing raster images with vector CSS
Learn how to create resolution-indepenent image shapes and effects through pure CSS3. CSS Hat is a Photoshop plugin that reveals how to sophisticated images and effects in CSS only. It shows how to support WebKit, Mozilla, Opera, and IE9.
Cole Joplin is a senior developer at Hughes, currently developing native iOS and HTML5.
7pm, Thursday 7/19, at C7 Bluffdale (~14600 South), followed by Applebee’s (12300 South).
Have you ever wanted to track something and see how it changes over time? Meet Graphite & StatsD, a combo of tools that make real-time tracking an extremely easy breeze. We’ll talk about how to set it up, how to start sending data to it, and how to get the most from your graphs & data. Time permitting, and I’m feeling a little adventurous, we’ll add some real-time tracking live to a production site to show how easy it is.
The details are same as usual – 3rd Thursday of the month (6/21), 7pm, at C7′s Bluffdale Datacenter, with afterparty at Draper Applebee’s (123rd south, just east of I-15). This will be an awesome presentation… see you there!
How to fix the default Apache etag configuration.
By default Apache uses “INode MTime Size” for FileETag. This is a problem if you have multiple servers for the same file, as the inode will be different on each server. Changing this to “MTime Size” will fix the problem.
This appears to have finally been fixed in Apache 2.4, which defaults to “MTime Size”.

The meeting for this month is tonight (March 29th) at C7. I will be presenting on PHP Deployment Strategies with Phing.
Meeting tonight has been postponed due to political reasons… We are planning on next week but not at C7 since Python user group is there… Mac will keep us posted, I am sure.
Is anyone having a problem posting on the jobs page?
Thanks to John Anderson and Dan Fellars for a great meeting last night, and to everyone who attended. It was great to get to know Lithium better.
Last night we had a special surprise, as well. Justin Carmony was in contact with Chris Hartjes, author of “The Grumpy Programmer’s Guide To Building Testable PHP Applications”, who donated a free copy of the book to a lucky UPHPU member. I’m pleased to announce that shuffle() selected Clint Berry! You can learn more about Chris and the book at http://www.grumpy-testing.com/ or http://www.littlehart.net/atthekeyboard or follow Chris on Twitter at @grmpyprogrammer. Thanks again, Chris!
