End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.


Weekly PHP-GTK chat on IRC

With the number of regulars on IRC being rather low as a whole, we can achieve better sync with each other by planning regular chats : this can avoid burnout by people logging in and seeing no one for a long time while making us all spend less time on the channel while still seeing more of each other.

This weekly chat session is planned for Saturdays, 19:00-23:00 GMT. The timing will be revised as users request. You can comment on this idea to suggest alternate timing.

Just a reminder: to access the channel, point your IRC client to the server, channel #php-gtk. If your browser supports IRC URIs (Opera does), you can just click on this link.

And it goes without saying that you can still connect at any other time of the day or night !
