Oct 11, 2013 @ 10:49:05

On the Symfony Blog today there's a new post talking about Symfony Live Berlin coming up next month (November 7th and 8th) with a free hack day following.

This year has already seen a few successful Symfony Live conferences in Paris, Portland, and London. But we got one more - Symfony Live Berlin is approaching fast! From November 7th to 8th, there will be again talks and workshops in Germany's capital city. Additionally, we will host a free hack day on Saturday, November 9th. We will return to last year's location, the Umweltforum Berlin - an over 100 year old church!

They talk about what's different than past years - dedicated language sessions, offering the Symfony certification exam and the previously mentioned hack day following the main event. You can see the full schedule for the event here or just pick up some last minute tickets if you'd like to attend.

Liip Blog:
Recap Symfony Live Conference in Paris
Mar 08, 2011 @ 08:36:58

On the Liip blog today there's a write up from David Buchmann about the just-passed Symfony Live conference that happened in Paris. his recap covers some of the high points of the event including sessions from the Liip-ers in the crowd.

Last week, there was the Symfony Live conference in Paris. The conference was surprisingly big, about 500 developers came together in the impressing building of Cité Universitaire Internationale. The main topic was of course the upcoming Symfony2 release. We had two days of talks and a hackday on Saturday, and lots of fun every night. The topics are on the conference website, some discussion and slides are on joind.in.

He mentions some of the "state of Symfony2" updates that were mentioned and some of the talks that were given by the Liip employees including ones on the Symfony2 CMF project, RabbitMQ and Symfony2, security and Javascript.

ServerGrove Blog:
Why Symfony2 already rocks
Feb 04, 2011 @ 10:49:30

On the ServerGrove blog today there's a quick new post about why they think Symfony2 already rocks when it comes to features and community.

We have talked quite a bit about Symfony2 earlier in this blog, and like everyone else we are really excited about it. It is a complete rewrite of the framework taking advantage of many of the newest features of PHP 5.3, and let me tell you, it is quite amazing.

They've been using the Symfony2 preview releases to power a control panel for their virtual server offerings. He talks about the current state of the project (features including Twig, a HTTP cache, debugging and security tools) and mentions the Symfony Live event happening in San Francisco next week (more here).
