July PHP Meetup: Peeling Back the Magic - Modern PHP Without a Framework

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Here's a challenge for you: The next time you start a new project, try not using a PHP framework.

It's quite possible your next job will not grant the luxury of starting a greenfield project with your framework of choice. The reality is that most high-value, business-critical PHP jobs involve existing applications. Building without a framework now will better prepare you to take on any PHP project in the future.

What was once a daunting task is now easier than ever! Join Kevin Smith as he walks us through peeling back the magic of the framework to see how it all works under the hood.
