Following last year's successful contribution session for Hacktoberfest, we're going to be running an online version this year.
All are welcome! If you're new to contributing to open source, several of us in the group maintain or have contributed to various projects and can give you some help finding a project or an issue to work on.
This month we have another online meetup, with two new faces for PHP South Wales. We have a lightning talk from Marcos Rogers on Xdebug, and Zvonimir Spajic from the company Made with Love giving us a fantastic talk on getters and setters - and why he doesn't like them.
Get, Set ... STOP!
This month we have an online workshop thanks to Mathias Verraes, who will be showing us how we can build some pretty cool stuff in PHP.

Our first speaker is a regular attendee at our user group, Jamie Callis (@O_JDesign) giving us a talk on Building a VS Code extension.
Our second speaker is everyones favourite Laravel Package developer, Freek Van der Herten (@freekmurze) giving us a talk on Building a realtime dashboard using Laravel and Livewire.
