Slides from Webservices Discussion Group

Here are the slides from today’s talk on the Allen Center kiosks.

The PHP in these slides should be good, but keep in mind that I edited it by about 30% so it would fit on one slide. I’ll be glad to share source code for any of this with anyone who might need it. PHP programmers who are about to consume their first webservice might get a boost from looking at it. If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to ask.

And thanks to everybody who came today!
