January Meetup - Password Validator With Jeremy Kendall

At our January monthly meetup MemphisPHP founder Jeremy Kendall will be talking about the Password Validator package that he wrote to '...make it (more) trivial to use the new password hash functions in your application. Just add the validator to your authentication script and you're up and running.' RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/memphis-technology-user-groups/events/158306042/ More on Password Validator:
Password Validator validates password_hash generated passwords, rehashes passwords as necessary, and will upgrade legacy passwords. Read the introductory blog post: PHP Password Hashing: A Dead Simple Implementation Password Validator is available for all versions of PHP >= 5.3.7.

New Year for MemphisPHP.org

With the new year we're making changes we hope will make MemphisPHP have an amazing 2014. As you can see we have a brand new website instead of just forwarding to Meetup.com We have a brand new meeting location at Southwest Tennessee Community College. We have a brand new Sponsor that started in December Modern Services, Inc and Vaco is also continuing to sponsor food at every meet up. We are also experimenting with a new meet up format. We'll be doing one 30 minute talk and two 15 minute show and tell sessions every meetup. The goal is to see if we can broaden the diversity of speakers AND content that we offer each month. If you would like to speak at MemphisPHP, let us know!
