With life getting closer and closer to normal, User Groups are making a comeback. Running a PHP Usergroup can be very rewarding at times and feel thankless at other times.

At this Roundtable, we talk with several PHP Usergroup organizers and discuss the pros and cons of running a PHP User Group and what some helpful tips and tricks are.
