There are lots of active, vibrant developer groups in the DC area: DC PHP, Baltimore PHP, and the Frederick Web Tech group. The DC PHP Beverage Subgroup meets monthly in Northern Virginia. But in the middle between all these groups lies Montgomery County, Maryland. In that area live hundreds of developers who struggle to reach any of the developer groups in the area on a weeknight.
It’s time to build them something of their own.
I’m working to organize a Rockville PHP group, focused on the developers in Montgomery County and surrounding areas who might find it hard to get into DC or Baltimore on a weeknight, or who live and work in Montgomery County. It will plan to meet on a different night than the Baltimore and DC PHP groups to avoid conflicts, and will probably involve beer (as is a PHP staple).
Interested? Drop me a line through the comments, or on Twitter. I’d love to hear from you!
