You might already know about the "State of Symfony 2" online conference that will take place on June 22nd and 23rd. To make this an even more vibrant experience, we came up with the concept of conference hubs.

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.

Now, here is how you need to proceed in order to help our community by hosting one of these hubs:

  • Get 5 tickets to the conference
  • Announce the hub on your company blog
  • Leave a comment here
  • Set up a projector, get a somewhat decent sound system

That's it. You're in! By running a conference hub you become a central player in animating and developing our fantastic community. We already talked to the people from Liip, who will host a hub in Zürich, Switzerland. If you just want to join an existing hub, come back in a couple of days and check the comments of this post. You should find one close by.

Thanks to the Liip team (Lukas Kahwe Smith and Pierre Spring) for the idea and for writing this post.
