Hello! I'm Elizabeth Naramore, the new PHP Community Manager for Engine Yard/Orchestra. I started coding PHP back in 2002, and since then, I've been a pretty active member of the global PHP Community, my local PHP user group (OINK-PUG in Cincinnati, Ohio) and with PHPWomen.org, where I'm President. I also recently came from SourceForge, where I was the Community Development Manager. I'm an author, speaker, coder, and I am so happy to be back in the PHP community once again. It's something that's near and dear to my heart, and it's where I belong.
I'm also excited about getting to know the Orchestra community, which is why we're running this contest. We know you guys are doing awesome things on the Orchestra platform, and we want to hear your stories. We will pick 5 lucky winners who will not only get a write-up on our blog, they will also get a copy of Sitepoint's recently released PHP Master: Write Cutting Edge Code, co-authored by our very own Davey Shafik.
So tell us your story! What cool project are you working on? What does it do? How is the Orchestra platform helping you? What challenges have you had, and how have you overcome them? What was the inspiration for your idea?
We want to hear it all. Send your stories to me__ by November 15,__ to firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to getting to know you!
