I am moving to San Diego, CA in one week. I have been a member of OrlandoPHP for about 18 months, so after I sold my house, I started looking for a user group to join. I searched and was shocked to find that there wasn’t an active PHP User’s Group. And as Cal Evans always says, if you look around for a user group leader and don’t find one, you’re it.
So I took the opportunity at #tek12 in Chicago to talk to a few user group leaders from around the country. I absorbed as much information as I could and recently opened San Diego PHP on meetup.com. It turns out there was a huge demand for this group in the area. We are already over 40 members with 15 confirmed for our first meetup.
The kicker is that I had two different members offer us conference room space to host the group, and also offered to buy pizza and drinks.
I am soooo looking forward to our first meetup and meeting the members. Looking for some fun and geekery, come check us out.
