Symfony Live Paris 2012 is in less than a month. In this post, I'll give you a quick update on the latest news.
As you might have noticed, we published the full schedule for Symfony Live Paris 2012 some time ago. This year, we have three tracks running in parallel; and that will allow for more breaks and plenty of time for everyone to chat and share.
New this year is a special slot for lightning talks. The idea is really simple: every 10 minutes, a speaker has 7 minutes to talk about something related to Symfony: from serious talks about a specific feature or bundle to fun topics about Symfony, developers, life, and more! Be creative, and be prepared!
To entertain us the first day, Jeremy Mikola will host a Jeopardy game. If you know Jeremy and if you follow him on Twitter, you already know that it will be a lot of fun! (no pressure Jeremy)
The Training Day
Like every year, the day before the conference, Sensio Labs will organize a training day. This year, you can choose between two different topics on Symfony2:
Introduction to Symfony2: Learn the basics of the Symfony framework and get ready to develop your first applications.
Going further with Symfony2: Learn more about the Symfony features set with advanced tools like caching, security and dependency injection management.
Each training will be delivered in French and English.
I know that most of you are waiting for the last minute to register but the sooner the better, really. One of the reason is that the hotels are already quite full nearby the conference venue... but the main reason is that it would make me sleep better in the coming weeks.
Also, if you have purchased your ticket as a voucher, don't forget to redeem it on the website to actually be registered.
Hosting a conference in France is not easy as French people expect sessions to be in French. This year, we have a big new thing for French attendees: we are going to have real-time translation for all sessions in track A and B.
And we are also going to have English translations for French sessions, which is great news as we shoud have a great session on the usage of Symfony2 at Overblog, which is one of the biggest blogging platform in Europe!
Last, but not the least, I can now announce that all sessions (in track A and B) will be recorded. And best of all, these videos will be free for all attendees.
We are still looking for sponsors to help us cover the cost of the conference; read the guide and consider becoming a sponsor. Thanks to ServerGrove and KnpLabs for helping us this year.
