Members of our group will receive a $100 discount on the Zend Certification Exam. However, because it is the end of the qurter this month, Zend "marketing is consumed w/ their qtr-end deliverables", so I cannot post all of the details here. If you want to take advantage of this discount, contact me directly at justin at koivi dot com. The process will involve sending an email to my contact at Zend who will then take care of you from that point on.
TCPHP is a great way to learn from other PHP developers and also a way to find work. Members who contribute to the site and mailing lists can gain recognition and network with other developers. We've had a lot of successful job connections over the years, and it's easy to understand why: when somebody helps you with a technical problem, you're likely to remember them the next time your company is hiring.
We've had a ton of excitement in the local PHP and other tech group meetings. Last week's Drupal meetings were well received, and spreading the intro/advanced topics across the TCWebDev and TCPHP groups opened some new doors. The local BSD group has had some exciting activity, with two internationally-known speakers already this year! Ethan Galstad brought us his presentation on Nagios, the extremely powerful and broadly-used monitoring suite. And tomorrow, the FreeBSD Security Officer will be giving us his BSDCan talk on VuXML. The Twin Cities open source tech scene is amazing, and growing rapidly!
