Announcing DCPHP.net

Today, the DC PHP Developer’s Group announced a new community website, at http://www.dcphp.net/. The website was the result of a few months’ discussions between key leaders in the group, including Keith Casey, Joe LeBlanc, Barry Austin and myself.

The new site contains a directory (under construction) of local PHP developers and local shops, a listing of local blogs, and announcements about the meetings and meetups in the DC PHP community. The site is always growing, so be sure to visit often!

I’ve learned a lot here in the past eight months, about development, about how to design well, and about how development should be done. There is still much left to learn, but the lessons I have learned here are beneficial and important.

It’s Official!

I’ve enjoyed working for DC PHP and I’ve learned a lot. It was just time to move on. And, with the Bivings Group being only two blocks from my house, how could I refuse?
