MidsouthMakers Hosting Memphis PHP August 23rd

by on Aug.20, 2012, under Events, Meetings, Presentations

Just heard for Jeremy, the leader of the Memphis PHP User Group. We’ll be hosting their monthly meeting this Thursday. Their meeting topic this month is “Building Magento Extensions with Brian Wentzloff” Id love to see some people from the #CodeMonkeys come check this out. We’ll definitely be doing some PHP in the near future. Magento is a very powerful E Commerce platform that quite a few companies are using, so the presentation should be very informative.
