New York PHP Special Presentation:  Introduction to AMP at GNUbies

   When:  March 10, 2004 at 6:30
  Where:  IBM Building, Manhattan
Details:  http://nyphp.org

As a special presentation, New York PHP President Hans Zaunere will
introduce the powerful AMP Technology suite to the GNUbies group this
Wednesday. From GNUbies.org:

We are pleased to announce that at this month's Gnubies meeting, Hans
Zaunere, President and Founder of New York PHP will be giving a basic
introduction to AMP - that is an extremely popular combination of
software used for web servers and includes the Apache web server, the
MySQL database and, in this case, the PHP programming language used for
web scripting. When using GNU/Linux as the OS this is often referred to
as LAMP. A basic explanation of each of these will be followed by a
demonstration of a basic setup including compiling and configuration and
then the writing of a simple web application. Clearly, since this is a
GNUbies meeting these will not be covered in depth, but you will get a
flavor of what can be done and a system will be set up and running
during the presentation providing basic practical information as well.

As a freelance developer of GPS systems for the New York State
Department of Environmental Conservation and other government
organizations, Hans employed Open Source tools to massage and analyze
geophysical data in 1995. While working as a network and systems
administrator for a startup ISP, he discovered PHP and quickly migrated
all modeling and monitoring tools to the web with the aid of Apache and

In 2001 Hans moved to Manhattan and took responsibility for critical
medical data as a systems architect at New York University. Then in
2002, he established New York PHP and AMP Technology to develop and
promote this key technology suite. Today he continues to wear systems
architect and administration hats, providing business solutions through
Open Source.

As always, we are grateful to IBM for their generous donation of space
for this mneeting. Please see http://gnubies.org for IBM's secuity
