As far as career advice goes, while I'm not far into my own career I'll pass on the best advice I've received so far: it's not up to you to decide if you're qualified for a job, so don't be afraid to apply.

Symfony Blog:
Introducing the Symfony Marketplace
November 13, 2014 @ 11:05:22

On the Symfony blog today they've announced what they call the Symfony Marketplace, a resource to locate products and services, all related to Symfony.

Today we are thrilled to introduce the new and long-awaited Marketplace section on symfony.com website. The Symfony Marketplace is a directory of products and services related to Symfony and its ecosystem. [...] We envisioned this marketplace for the first time when we launched Symfony 2.0. Thanks to the recent boom of Symfony related services and applications, the marketplace is now a reality.

Currently they have around 45 projects (open source and commercial) and tools that are popular in the Symfony community. There's also links to several Symfony-friendly services out there including Microsoft Azure and Platform.sh. Sound interesting? Be sure to check it out or find out how to get your projects/product/service added to the lists.

Symfony Blog:
Symfony November Camp in Sweden
November 06, 2014 @ 10:53:05

On the Symfony blog they've made the announcement about the Symfony November Camp happening in Sweden (back for their second time) November 14th in Stockholm.

As an organizer of the Swedish Symfony community I'm happy to say that we are hosting our second Symfony Conference. It is a one-day, single-track conference with speakers from 6 countries. The event takes place in Stockholm on November 14th. We will have two workshops the day before the event with Matthias Noback and Magnus Nordlander. One is a workshop on getting started with Symfony, and the other is for advanced Symfony application architecture. Both of our workshops are small groups, to ensure that you'll have plenty of access to the trainer.

They have a great list of speakers lined up for the day's event including Matthias Noback, Mathias Verraes and Raul Fraile. Tickets for the conference itself are 109 Euro and the training is 439 Euro. You can find out more about the event and pick up tickets on the November Camp website.

Acquia Blog:
PHP is getting Faster
November 04, 2014 @ 13:35:29

On the Acquia blog they've posted another in their guest post series, this time from Richard Miller, a Senior Technical Consultant with SensioLabs (the people behind the Symfony framework). In this new post he talks about how the performance of PHP is getting better and why.

PHP is not the fastest language in which we could write web applications, yet we continue to do so for many other reasons. Pure speed of a language is rarely the main deciding factor for many projects. [...] So why worry about the speed of the language at all? Well, application architecture is improving and we are finding ways to avoid all those other bottlenecks. [...] Trying to gain speed through profiling and optimising code can be a long and tedious process. Thankfully, improvements in the speed of the language itself give us an improvement in these other areas for free.

He looks at "a brief history" of the language and the major milestones that have lead to the biggest performance gains over the years. He also talks about some of the alternatives out there to "normal PHP" for execution including the HHVM and HippyVM projects. He ends the post with a warning, though - be careful of fragmentation and separation of the community based on these different tools and embrace things like the language specification to keep things on an even keel.
