Symfony Live 2011: Paris & San Francisco
Twitter is probably becoming the best and fastest way to spread news about Symfony. As I make more and more announcements there, I write less and less blog posts; which is unfortunate as not all Symfony users follow me on Twitter... yet.
So, for the third year in a row, I and Sensio Labs are very proud to announce the Symfony Live conference for 2011 in Paris. And I am even more excited to announce that for the first time, we will also organize a Symfony Live conference in the US (in San Francisco).
The San Francisco conference will take place on February 8-9th; and the Paris conference will take place on March 3-4th.
These two conferences will be a bit special as they will focus on Symfony2 and its final release. Hopefully, we will even be able to release Symfony2 stable during the Paris conference.
Both conferences will be held in English but as the French community is actually one of the largest one in the world, we will have a French track for the Paris conference (the Paris conference will have two parallel tracks this year.)
In addition to the "regular" conference, we will also organize free "hacking" days on February 5-6th in San Francisco and on March 5th in Paris. This is a unique opportunity to work together in the same room on Symfony2 topics. We will write code, fix bugs, discuss things like the Symfony CMF or PhpBB4 on Symfony2, write and translate documentation, and much more. That should be a lot of fun and everybody is free to join. Of course, we will provide free wifi, pizzas and beer.
This year again, Sensio Labs is going to organize a training day. This year, we propose a Symfony2 training on March 2nd in Paris. The number of seats are quite limited, so you'd better register early.
Call for Speakers
We are still looking for speakers who want to share their experience on symfony and Symfony2. All sessions must be in English for the San Francisco conference and in English or French for the Paris conference. We welcome talks about any topic related to symfony, Symfony2, frameworks, Doctrine, PHPUnit, CMSes, and PHP in general.
If you want to share your real-life Symfony experience, consider submitting a session proposal before October 30th 2010 (we cover the flight and hotel for foreign speakers.) More information about how to send your proposals on the official conference website.
Help & Sponsors
We are also looking for help for the conference in San Francisco (as I don't live there). If you want to help, send me an email.
Early Bird Price
Symfony conferences are always a great way to meet the community, learn new things, and share experiences. So, register as soon as possible and don't be shy and submit your session proposals. See you there!
