Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


Sensiolabs why not sponsor the event?
@larsson, we've contacted Sensio Labs and they've been always willing to help promoting the conference (for example with this blog post).

The reason for not sponsoring the event is simple: symfony popularity has exploded and Sensio simply cannot sponsor every conference, workshop or symfony related event. We'll try it again next year :)
My comment was not a criticism just curiosity. Maybe next year I will not have this curiosity :)
Congratulations Javier!
Today the organizers have announced that expand the capacity to 170.

Congratulations to the organizers for the great work and I think
has been wrong SensioLabs not collaborate.This will not be a meeting
of friends, surely will be "THE EVENT" in Spanish on symfony.Perhaps
year more sponsors are encouraged to collaborate.

See you at the conference.
Javier Eguiluz is right, what he said is correct. Sensio Labs has
always been keen to help.
From the organisation, we will try our best to collaborate with Sensio
Labs in following editions. There are many people that asked us (by
mail) an effort to have Fabien in the conferences.
See you in the conference @larsson
@larsson: What are you talking about? I have been in touch with the organizers and I'm not able to come for personal reasons. Period. I have sent them some goodies for the conference. What are you asking for?
I apologize if I upset someone.

@Fabien I ask nothing and it was not my intention to demand anything, just that I was surprised that SensioLabs not appear as a sponsor, just that no other interpretations.

Apologies again.
