Symfony 2014 Year in Review London Symfony Meetups
January 06, 2015 @ 13:19:01

The Symfony blog has another in their "2014 Year in Review" series posted, this time with a focus on the London Symfony meetups and the presentations that were made.

2014 was a really successful year for the Symfony Meetup Group in London. I've been involved helping to organize these meetups for a few years now, but it was never a regular thing until this year. With a huge help of my SensioLabs UK colleagues we managed to bring the group to the next level. Each meetup we're getting around 60-90 attendees, which is a big improvement compared to the previous years. We also started recording the talks. Since the Symfony community in London is much bigger, I believe we can do even better in 2015!

Talks presented this year included:

  • Optimizing Your Front End Workflow
  • Applying Domain Driven Design with Symfony2 projects
  • Silex saved me from my legacy code
  • Scaling Symfony2 apps with RabbitMQ
  • Speed up your Symfony2 application and build awesome features with Redis

Each topic has a summary, a link to the slides and a video of the presentation (if available).

November 07, 2012 @ 11:32:27

On the Symfony blog there's a quick post noting that the videos for this year's Symfony Live London (2012) event have been posted on their YouTube channel.

Last month, we were pleased to publish all the videos from this year's edition of Symfony Live conferences in Paris and in San Francisco. During the first week following their publication, more than 10,000 views were recorded, that's amazing! And today, we've just added 5 more hours of talks.

There's seven videos in the playlist including talks from Mike van Riel (video), Rowan Merewood (video) and Fabien Potencier himself (video) with a look at what's coming up for Symfony.

CICONF '12 Speaker List
December 14, 2011 @ 08:31:32

The CICONF (CodeIgniter conference) group has made a new post about the lineup for their next event including people like Adam Griffiths, Alex Bilbie, Alexis Serneels, Harrow "WanWizard" Verton, Nick Jackson and Tyler Flint.

The chances are if you are using a library, addon, Spark or tutorial for your CodeIgniter projects it will have been written by one of these guys. Adam Griffiths wrote the book, Alex Bilbie has made some amazing OAuth 2 and Mongo code, WanWizard wrote DataMapper ORM - the most popular ORM used with CodeIgniter - and I've [Phil Sturgeon] released a few blogs about CI over the years.

They'll be doing the double-event conferences this year again - this time they'll be in London (February 18th-19th and San Francisco at a yet to be determined date). If you'd like to attend the London sessions, you can already purchase your tickets - a student pass for £35 and a standard ticket for £45.
