Aug 13, 2014 @ 15:22:55

On the Symfony blog today they've officially announced the workshops that will be happening at this year's SymfonyCon Madrid and Symfony Live New York.

About 3 weeks ago, we launched 2 different polls to ask you what workshops you wanted to attend before SymfonyLive New York and SymfonyCon Madrid. First, we want to thank all the people who participated in the poll, so many of you answered, thank you very much for your time! Thanks to your votes, we were able to know which workshops were really interesting for you.

At Symfony Live New York you'll be able to attend Fabien's "Symfony Best Practices" or "Building RESTful Applications with Symfony" (the top two most requested training sessions). At SymfonyCon Madrid there's even more choices:

  • Building RESTful Applications with Symfony
  • Symfony Best Practices
  • Deploying Symfony Applications
  • Profiling PHP Applications

You can find out more about these two conferences from their main event websites: Symfony Live New York and SymfonyCon Madrid.

CICON2011 and the future of CodeIgniter
Aug 29, 2011 @ 13:51:43

As mentioned by CodeIgniter.com Phil Sturegon has posted a wrapup of this year's CICON2011 (CodeIgniter conference, US-side) that happened in New York on the 20th.

CICON2011 happened and it was awesome. We had 100 CodeIgniter nerds in the same place - which is the biggest collection of CI nerds since 54 at CICON2010 in the UK, but this event was so much better. We had a whole load of announcements that have changed the way the framework is contributed to and improved the whole community for the better. This is not me blowing smoke up my backside, but feedback I have had from attendees. So, what did you miss?

Some of the things on his list have already been announced through other channels, but it's good to have them all in one spot:

  • The move of the project to Github
  • the merging of CodeIgniter Core and Reactor
  • The merge of the Sparks library functionality into the core
  • as well as some general positivity in the community

He's also linked to a few other summaries of other folks that were in attendance: Adam Fairholm, Frank Michel and Greg Aker.

HypedSound Seeks Co-Founder/Lead Developer (Virtual, NYC)
Jul 21, 2010 @ 02:41:05

Company HypedSound
Location Virtual, NYC
Title Co-Founder/Lead Developer

We need a technical lead who wants to take HypedSound to the next level, someone who is equally passionate about music, technology, and startups. We already launched our website at hypedsound.com in early June 2010 using outside developers and our own resources.

About HypedSound – HypedSound is a social music platform for artists and listeners. The premise: Why be a member of a dozen different music networks when one site can meet all your music needs? With HypedSound you can host your online music profile and network with other artists and listeners just like on the other music social networks, but we take it a step further by adding modules specifically for online music collaboration, contests, finding band members, music discovery, and music information. What we have now is just the beginning of our ultimate vision to be the default music platform for interactive music services, that is, going beyond streaming music. We have a lot of new ideas that we’d like to discuss as we improve the existing product and solidify our early adopting user base.

Sample user: Molly is in a rock band and uses HypedSound to share her band’s music with the HypedSound community. Her band networks with other artists and their fans, but her band lost their drummer and needs a replacement. She then goes to the Virtual Auditions section and posts a classified ad along with a video of her band playing live, hoping to lure some talent in from someone in her area. Sam, a drummer, has been using his listener profile to browse music and take part in the forums. He uses the Collaborate section to add tracks to other people’s music but now he’s ready to find a band. Luckily, he doesn’t have to go far because he finds the ad that Molly posted and immediately goes to check out her band’s profile and respond to the ad. They then meet up to jam and go back to HypedSound to show-off their new demo.

A programmer, web developer with extensive knowledge of PHP. The site also utilizes JavaScript, XML, Ajax, and DTHML and the database architecture is MySQL. Expertise in additional languages, platforms, and technologies a plus.

Even though we have already put in a considerable amount of time into the company in addition to a financial investment, we do not undervalue the importance of having a technical lead. Because we are currently a bootstrapped company and pre-revenue, the arrangement involves no salary initially, but we offer equity comparable to that of a co-founder and commensurate with dedication and experience. If you cannot commit full-time, we are open to discussing a “nights and weekends” type arrangement in the short-term. If you can see yourself passionate about the project in the long-term, we’d love to talk to you.

Location (NYC, Virtual):
We are flexible in terms of location in the short-term. Ideally you would be able to relocate to New York City in early 2011 pending funding and revenue status of the company. I plan to relocate at the beginning of next year, but currently live in Washington D.C. and Montreal.

Email me at jonathan@hypedsound.com if you have any interest or questions about the project. Examples of previous work and your CV/LinkedIn profile are welcome. Having the required technical expertise is only part of the story; just as important is your alignment with the goals and vision of the company for the future.
