PHP Community Code Review moderated by Tim Crider

You know your code works, but have you ever wondered if it would win a beauty contest, or could be improved at all? Well here is your chance to find out! On Wednesday, June 15 Baltimore PHP will host a community code review, moderated by Tim Crider. We will provide a few examples of both good and bad code, but anyone is welcome (AND ENCOURAGED) to bring some examples of their code to let the group evaluate.  We had AWESOME submissions the last time.  A lot of GREAT conversation was generated.

Submit your code before the event to, and we will obfuscate your code and evaluate it.

All levels of code will be accepted. Just starting out in PHP? This is your chance to get help and guidance from people that have made their careers in PHP. Do you write Enterprise level code and think it’s second to none? Now is your chance to test your theory and share your skills with the group and pass on your knowledge.

He is a very avid PHP user who often thinks outside of the box.

The meeting starts at 6:30, and we’ll get on the code review around 7:00. 6:30 – 7:00 is reserved for chit chat, socializing, and our usual pizza tasting :)

We are meeting at our new location.  Michael Rosner, a member of Beehive Baltimore, made the new meeting location possible.  Please make sure to thank him and support your local community.  Bring a friend that’s interested in PHP, someone looking to refine their skills, or meet fellow PHPers. The more the merrier.

As usual, we’ll continue our tradition and conversation over a few beers.  We’ll be going to the Fieldhouse afterwards.  The Fieldhouse is in the same complex as the meeting.  No driving required.
