1. “Welcome 2015” Meetup

Come and join us for talks on phalcon (the php framework written in C and amazingly fast) and the all new Drupal 8! We are meeting on the 19.01.2015 at 18:30 at Stockwerk. There’ll be pizza and drinks thanks to our awesome sponsors.

As always, please RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/viennaphp/events/219443095/

2. Ansible workshop

We announced last year that 2015 we’ll be having one workshop each month. The kick-off is done by Sebastian with his workshop on ansible. Ansible is an IT automation tool. You use yaml to describe action (like installing a package, putting a file somewhere) and these actions are peformend on the target machines by automatically sshing into them. If you are setting up servers (or are interested to do so), come and have a look.

The workshop will be for beginners and Sebastian will walk you through ansible in a real-life setup.

It is happening on the 27.01.2015, as always at 18:30 at Stockwerk CoWorking. You should RSVP now: http://www.meetup.com/viennaphp/events/219592893/

3. Database workshops with Markus Winand

We are very happy to announce that Markus Winand (trainer, author and speaker on database performance) will be the trainer in 2 workshops about databse indices and performance.
