Community Enables Community

Published on

The PHP community is my family, a group of people that I love hanging out with at conferences, meetups or events. But it can only be a community if there are people to extend this reach and become part of the ripple-effect the PHP community has.

In this talk I describe the reasons why we have in the Benelux 25 php communities and why the are really valuable. Will you be part in the next community rising?
