Kick off of SEMIUG collaborative PHP Project

SEMIUG is excited to get started on a collaborative project to complete a PHP application on IBM i. We will choose a live project for use during the activity. The project will be developed on an IBM i made available for this activity. Remote access will be made available. Gatherings will be scheduled to review the project, converse and share how to. SEMIUG members will participate in the project either working as a team or as an individual. The project is a great way for member organizations to have an application coded using PHP at no charge. The project is also a great way for group members to learn new skills and gain experience in using PHP on IBM i.

If your organization is interested in having a PHP application coded for no charge please attend this months meeting to submit your project. High level project details are required. Coding will be completed on the IBM i box made available for this purpose. We will set a project timeline and once projects are complete your organization will be able to choose the project that best fits your needs. The application selected will be installed and implemented in coordination with your staff. SEMIUG group members that would like to participate please sign up at this months meeting. If you aren’t able to attend please submit your proposed project or request to sign up to Laura Ubelhor by .
