Since LinkedIn opened up its Groups system, there has been a huge growth in the number of groups related to PHP. Some with charters, some without; some with a specific community background and others with a specific regional focus. I am posting this to bring attention to some of them.
In order of popularity (member count) some general groups (non-regional) are:
- Php developers
- PHP language
- PHP Technology Specialists
- PHP Developer Network
- PHP User Group
Some of these are useful if you are looking for a job (the recruiters tend to play nice and stay on-topic), others ban job posts and stick to discussions.
There are literally hundreds of groups related to PHP in some shape or fashion – pure PHP, LAMP, PHP&Mysql, Frameworks, and many regional *PUG type groups.
