As a part of their "State of Symfony" event coming up on June 22nd, the Symfony project has suggested an alternative to watching the event by yourself - becoming a confernece hub for the event and inviting more people to come and enjoy the event.
The idea is pretty simple: Instead of watching the conference home alone, you could just organize or join one of the conference hub near your home. A hub is nothing but a physical place that will add the social aspect to an already super interesting conference. A place to watch the conference together and talk about the presentations. And who knows, maybe we'll even have small hack sessions all over the hubs, playing with the new Preview Release after the presentations.
Setting up a local hub is simple - just purchase five tickets to the event, announce it for your area and let them know you're all set up by leaving a comment on the post. There's already one hub that wlll be run by Liip in Zurich if you're in that area.
