This month we have the awesome Michael Cullum speaking for us at PHP Dorset. Michael will be giving his talk titled Getting off the Island
There are many FOSS projects out there - such as phpBB, Drupal, Wordpress, MyBB and Joomla - that are web applications designed for end-users and have, due to a range of factors, become very isolated from the rest of the open source community, which can only be a bad thing. Many of these projects are beginning to change their philosophies, but there is a long way to go. We’ll look at how frameworks, libraries, and the PHP FIG can help these projects to 'get off the island' and how we can shift the focus from creating communities to integrating them.
If you would like to come along please register for a ticket, it's free - but we have limited space at the venue.
After the talk there will be a post-talk social.
