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.

Meet the PHPEM Organisers

PHPem is very grateful for having people willing to commit their time towards the goals of our group. They are all unpaid volunteers.

PHPEM is also supported by commercial and academic institutions, without them we wouldn't be able to run our workshops, have a place to meet or continue our work. To them we are also very grateful. For more information about our supporters please click their logos below.
