  • 7:00 Feature Presentation
    A Tale of Three Four Templates
    Lead by NYPHP members Chris Snyder, Daniel Kushner and Hans Zaunere, see how the different templating solutions compare. Chris looks at the powerful Smarty engine, Daniel examines the pure PHPLIB implementation, and Hans maintains that PHP is a templating engine itself! Plus, Andrew Yochum reviews PHPTAL! The panel will examine three identical tasks, and compare each solution for performance, maintainability and development life cycle.

    Join us for open Q&A, including dinner and drinks after the meeting.

As always this meeting is free and open to the public.
