The schedule for Symfony Loves PHP USA 2018 conference is released!
We’re super thrilled to announce that SymfonyLive USA becomes now Symfony Loves PHP USA conference!
Welcome to Symfony Loves PHP USA, the only conference dedicated to Symfony and PHP in the USA. We decided to change the conference name and its purpose to create a unique place in the USA where you can hear all the latest and best developments with Symfony and PHP! We aim to gather the American Symfony and PHP communities in San Francisco from October 11th to October 12th. We want you to come and feel welcome regardless your level of development with Symfony or PHP (beginner, advanced, intermediate).
We're super excited to announce that the conference schedule has just been released! We're very pleased to welcome 13 speakers at the conference. Meet all the conference speakers (in alphabetical order):

Nicolas Grekas, Symfony Core Team Member, will be talking about "Symfony Cache: a premium recipe to fast apps". With some raw examples and benchmarks, let's review how to select the best backend for your needs, wire them in your apps, do tags-based invalidation, protect against cache stampede, etc. Caching might be the most efficient strategy to fast apps.

Even if you have no intention of becoming a PHP core developer or creating a PECL extension, cursory knowledge of PHP's inner workings can prove useful.
