Hans Zaunere is President and Founder, New York PHP. He is also a central figure in New York's technical landscape, having co-founded New York's BSD group, and co-organized technical events and PHP conferences.

Since the early 1990's, Mr. Zaunere has maintained leadership roles in mission critical, classified, and cutting-edge technical environments. As a fulltime analyst for NYU Medical, and a network security administrator prior to that, Mr. Zaunere proved the business case of open source by developing reliable and effective systems that integrated with commercial technology.

Having moved to MySQL, Inc., Mr. Zaunere worked as a senior consultant and sales engineer, providing mission critical strategic and architectural guidance for Fortune 500 companies across North America, Europe and Asia.

Today Mr. Zaunere operates New York PHP and New York PHP Community fulltime, supporting the "business community" by uniting dot-com with dot-org and managing a team of technology professionals. Under Mr. Zaunere's leadership, New York PHP develops and supports critical systems for the financial, medical, and military spaces. New York PHP Community continues as the largest PHP group, thanks to the involvement of thousands worldwide, and a timeline and who's who of the PHP and open source community.




O'Reilly has been kind enough to provide us with some of their books, which we will continue to raffle off as giveaways at our meetings.

Addison-Wesley Professional/Prentice Hall PTR has been kind enough to provide us with some of their books, which we will continue to raffle off as giveaways at our meetings. Addison-Wesley also has a new end-user discount, available through their User Group program. We will be announcing the details at our next meeting!

Unigroup would like to thank both companies for the support provided by their User Group programs.

Note: The chances tend to be about 1 in 5, that any attendee of our meeting will walk away with a fairly valuable giveaway (ie. many of these books are valued between $30 and $60)!

We also still have some Novell/SuSE Linux and OpenSUSE Linux CD-ROMS from our friends at the NYC Novell Office.
