Perhaps you intend a United States user group?

Yes I suppose it's a large area. I could say the United States, although we are not that united either. Maybe just an English speaking citizens of north America users group. ESCONA-CIUG Probably to many letters there. <grin>

In general I just wanted to see if others who spoke English and were somewhere in the US were interested in getting together and talking about CodeIgniter.

I'm excited to see a version 3 coming out and to the continued development of such a portable well thought out framework. Too many of the frameworks are going the zend route like laravel and symfony. Which really needs shell access to be managed on any scale and is in my opinion missing the mark for a great deal of the web development opportunities out there today. Not everyone is looking to build enterprise sized projects, and most who are want it totally homegrown not based on an existing framework.

For small to medium sized businesses, entrepreneurs, and your neighbor who wants some cool application on the web. CodeIgniter is where I tend to point them. It's small, fast, easy to read and to hand off to another development team if built as a sub contract, and doesn't at it's core muddy up the base PHP with so many layers of abstraction to make it slow and unmanageable.

I fear I got off track, first cup of caffeine and all. Anybody out there in the US want to talk CI?
