A writeup of James' talk at PHPMiNDS about the impacts of criticising others for their technology choices.
I want to say a big thanks for everyone who came to https://phpminds.org this evening to hear my talk about the IndieWeb!
I hope you all got something out of the talk and it's encouraged you to look into it a bit more - come along to https://www.jvt.me/events/homebrew-website-club-nottingham/ for more IndieWeb + personal website building.
I'm looking forward to getting a blog post out, covering it, but that may have to wait until I give the talk at https://oggcamp.org in October.
I will be attending September Double Whammy - Noobs on Ubs and the IndieWeb on

Joining PHPMiNDS' organising team
I'm super excited to announce that I'm joining the organising team for https://phpminds.org/ !
Trawling back through the Meetup.com group for PHPMiNDS, I found the earliest time I marked myself as attending was November 2016.
I've never been a PHP dev, although I've dabbled for years. But I've always seen it as a great community, and have been attending for most months since then.
Attending tech meetups has always been about bettering myself, and learning more, and the talks at PHPMiNDS can absolutely be applied to my work, despite it being a different tech stack.
Before https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/04/11/phpminds-april/ Shaun had mentioned to me about looking for another pair of hands with organising PHPMiNDS, and after a little bit of time to mull it over I decided I would definitely be interested in getting involved.
I'm really excited to start to help out Adoni (https://pavlakis.uk) and Shaun (https://shaunhare.co.uk) with organising the meetup, and I hope continue making it as awesome for others as it has been to me.
I will be attending PHPMiNDS - Introducing Agile and Agile Principles on
