The PHP Community is more than a bunch of friends that hang out at conferences. We are PHPamily. We’ve got each others’ backs.

I have seen and been a part of this community coming together for so many reasons. This community pitched in to bring the most rural member to his first conference. This community helped cover lost wages for the widow of one of our own. We celebrated birthday milestones. We’ve helped with medical bills. We’ve sat in waiting rooms with our friends. We share our knowledge, our compassion, our jobs. We celebrate marriages and births. We mourn the losses too.

We are PHPamily.
