On the Symfony blog there's an announcement about a few Symfony speakers that are coming to North America (despite the cancelation of SymfonyLive here in the U.S.). These speakers will be a part of the "Symfony Live Track" at this year's php[world] conference happening in Washington, D.C. in November.
In reality, Symfony owes its success to countless people and companies who have not only used Symfony, they've become evangelists, by showing Symfony to friends, writing blog posts, speaking at user groups, creating bundles and using Symfony to create real-world apps that do incredible things.
[...] All that work has made Symfony hugely popular in Europe and other places. And now, we're turning up the heat where I live: the USA! Adoption is already growing fast - especially with the release of Drupal 8 - but there's still a huge opportunity to evangelize and support Symfony here.
[The track]https://world.phparch.com/session-track/symfony/) will include talks from Fabien Potencier and Nicolas Grekas and others. It will cover topics like:
- Symfony 3, the Key Concepts
- Migration Guide to Symfony 3.0
- Profiling PHP Applications
- Symfony vs Silex, Micro vs Full Stack
Check out the full track for more information about these and other talks to be presented during the week.
