July 2017 – Special Combined Meetup with TechTalks – A KCWiT group

We are delaying our regular evening meetup by a week this month in order to have a combined meetup with the Kansas City Women in Technology TechTalks. This will be an exciting opportunity for us to learn about KCWiT, TechTalks, and other KCWiT programs. John Kary will give his highly-rated “Rethinking Loops” talk.

After the event, please rate the meeting and the talk.

Light refreshments will be served.

We will meet at 6pm, July 12, at Stowers Institute in KCMO. Free visitor parking in the parking garage will be available (just park anywhere that isn’t marked “member”).

An RSVP is appreciated via meetup.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!

JCCC Looking for Web Application Developer, PHP

Johnson County Community CollegeThose of you who have been with us since the beginning probably remember when our group started over a decade ago at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas.

Well, turns out our friends over at JCCC are looking for a Web Application Developer with PHP experience.  Go to jobs.jccc.edu for details and application information.

If you have experience and are looking for a great place to work in KC, I’d personally recommend you check them out.

We want your feedback!

KC PUG is looking for feedback from it’s members. If you are reading this message, THAT’s YOU!

Please take a few moments and fill out this great survey John put together for us. It’s only one page– 10 simple questions–that will help us get a better understanding of what our PHP Development community is looking for.

Our Quick, 3 minute survey!

Thank you for your time!

New year, new site, happy Dan

Welcome back…again.

KCPug.org has been around since 2001 (I think) and I am pleased to release the fourth major iteration of our site. We have many plans for new tools, pages, and information–but for now, I focused mainly on data migration.  You will find some placeholders looking for feedback, etc.  You may even spot a custom widget or two.

What you will find is any active user accounts, stories and story comments (sorry, no forums).

I still plan to post how I did the migration…there isn’t much in-depth xoops to wordpress migration information out there and when you see my ugly sql of doom, you will probably see why.

I’m fairly new to WordPress, so if you have any tips, ideas, or ah-ha moments, please let me know.  I certainly look forward to seeing you all again in this wonderful new year.

Presentation (with live Demo) on Solr this weekend!

Since you all MISSED IT at JCCC’s Free College Day, I’ll be giving my presentation and demo of getting started with the Apache Solr search engine.

Learn how to add full text search, faceted searches to any development project. Impress your friends, your neighbors, your grandma.

This is one presentation you won’t want to miss. :-)

October 2009 Meeting

Unfortunately, due to family obligations, neither Dan nor I will be able to make it to the October meeting. KC PHP User Group has become a fairly autonomous group, so this doesn’t mean the meeting is canceled. It just means the tables won’t be arranged in the front north corner ahead of time. Please, feel free to show up and share your projects with one another and get input from the group, though! I’ll see you in November!

Website Change

Sorry gang, the link-spammers have finally beaten me down. I came in today, and we had over 100 pieces of link-spam to clean out. So, I’ve disabled all anonymous posting. If I’ve missed any areas or comments, please let me know.

Of course, you can all still post anywhere on the site simply by logging in first. Naturally, this won’t completely eliminate it; but it should help a bit.

Thanks for your help in keeping our site clean!!
