SymfonyWorld Online 2021 Winter Edition December 9 – 10, 2021 100% Online 25 talks and 10 workshops

Symfony Dev IRC Meetings are Back!

When Symfony2 was first being built, we met every week on IRC to discuss development, direction and anything else that kept the project moving and healthy. They were productive, fun, and gave people a chance to give their insight on important topics. Everyone was invited, and we even had a page on the docs that discussed how the meetings work.

Now, with so much happening in the Symfony and PHP world, I'm thrilled to report that Symfony is bringing these meetings back. And of course, everyone's ideas, insights and input are as important and needed as ever.

Meeting Details

When Every other Thursday at 17:00 CEST starting with May 21st (calendar invite)

Where The #symfony-dev channel on the Freenode IRC server

Topics The meeting will be structured very similar to the past meetings, with 4 topics that last 15 minutes each.

Topics for the first meeting will focus on team roles, workflow for handling issues and PRs faster, as well as a few other items. But in the future, we'll get back to a process where the topics (and voting on them) will be opened up to everyone (but everyone can still attend and participate in the first meeting!). That's a work-in-progress. I (Ryan) will be organizing the meetings for now - so if you have any input or feedback, please bother me ([email protected]).


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.


Hi Ryan, this are good news.
You have a typo: brining
Hey Ryan, please see
for that matter ;-)
Thanks Mario! Got it fixed :).

@Marc I talked with jrobeson yesterday, we've decided to open up symfony-dev at least partially, around these meetings. We're still figuring that out - because we don't want to confuse people looking for help, but this is a legitimate use of #symfony-dev.
