Symfony Blog:
Announcing Symfony Live Portland 2013
December 04, 2012 @ 13:42:29

On the Symfony blog today there's a new post talking about a new addition to the "Symfony Live" series of events - Symfony Live Portland happening in May of 2013.

For the first time ever, Symfony Live is going to co-locate with two other significant long-standing conferences: I'm speaking of course about DrupalCon Portland and WebVisions. On May 20-24, you will have 5 days to get trained on Symfony or Drupal features, to attend the talks you want, to meet and learn from other communities and to share your experience with new friends! We'll all be in cool Portland, isn't it so great?

You can, of course, purchase a ticket to just the Symfony event but they're also offering combo tickets where you can get a special rate for access to all three conferences. The event will be May 20th through 24th in Portland, Oregon.
