All the women in the house – stand up

Ok was in the PHP Community channel (#phpc) on freenode when we started talking about the number of women in PHP world. Elizabeth Naramore and I know we aren’t the only ones (between the 2 of us we could count ~10 other women in the PHP world). There have got to be more then that. So if you are a woman and a PHP developer – stand up and be counted. Feel free to introduce yourself and would you be interested in a PHP women’s group?

I was thinking of going to a conference, and the photos from the previous one showed large conference halls full of men and only men. I’m used to women being outnumbered, but I have to say – it didn’t look like a place I’d feel comfortable. So… is anyone planning to go to a conference?

My sister and I are both PHP programmers(although my sister is much better than I am). I started web designing professionally when I was 12, stopped a few years later, and am now switching gears to programming. Nice to meet you.

Though I just entered the world of PHP recently, I must say it’s quite fun to learn.
Not too sure if that’s considered a count or not, but oh wells. Also, I am all for the idea of a PHP group, sounds like a great way to enjoy PHP.
