GrazPHP Meetup, Year One

One year ago, Borislav Lazendić and I started GrazPHP meetup. We wanted to create a small community of people who are interested in development and PHP subjects.

Overall idea was to have periodical meetups. Therefore different lecturers would be able to share their knowledge and promote their work within our community.

It was a challenging road to organize first meetups and to keep up with them throughout whole year.

This post is a quick review of most important details and biggest supporters of our community throughout the year 2018.

So, without further ado…
