PHP East Midlands (PHPem) is dedicated to the tech community in the East Midlands; we run events regularly throughout the year which include workshops, talks and conferences.
We meet on the 1st Thursday of each month. Our talks are on various topics around web technologies and have included frameworks, debugging, testing, scaling, security and agile - to name a few.
Everyone of any skill level is welcome to attend. We normally have one talk per month - although we have also had combined talks - that can be anything from 20 minutes to an hour or longer, depending upon the speaker.
After the presentation we continue the conversation at a nearby pub.
