LeedsPHP is a non-profit group to discuss and share knowledge about PHP and related web technologies. We meet monthly (probably) and enjoy a few talks from locals or people who have traveled further afield.

It’s open to any skill level from beginners to experts alike and we try to vary the levels so as to not alienate anyone.

The meet-ups aren’t open to recruiters unless you’re just popping along in a learning capacity.


Our long term sponsors can be seen in the footer of this page. Additional meet-up specific sponsors will be detailed on the individual event pages.

If you would like to provide further sponsorship, long term, or for a particular events get in touch via twitter.
