The Symfony Live Conference Paris 2009

I am very proud and excited to announce the very first symfony live conference, organized by Sensio Labs, with the help of the AFUP. The conference will be held in France, Paris, between June 11th and June 12th.

Even if the conference is only for French speaking people, it is yet another important step for the building of the symfony community in the world.

During two days, major websites using symfony (Yahoo! and Dailymotion, just to name the two biggest ones), will share their experience with the framework, and symfony developers will share their usage of symfony.

It is also a unique occasion to meet the symfony core team as many of them will be present during the conference (Jonathan Wage, Kris Wallsmith, Nicolas Perriault, Grégoire Hubert, Dustin Whittle, Romain Dorgueil, and myself).

With more than 20 sessions, and as many speakers, the definitive schedule has been published today. The program is packed with a lot of great sessions: from best web development practices, to more advanced technical sessions, I'm sure everybody will learn something new. To close the second day of the conference, I will host a live refactoring session. During this session, I will refactor some "real world" project done with symfony. If you are interested in letting me refactor your code, send me an email with the source code (I'm looking for projects that are visible online and simple enough to install).

The registration is now open. Even if we have just moved the conference to a bigger place (la Cité Universitaire Internationale) to welcome more people, the number of seats is limited; don't wait too much before registering.

If you can read French, you can also get the latest news about the conference by following the sflive09fr twitter account or by subscribing to the #sflive09fr twitter hashtag.

Last, but not least, the conference would not have been possible without the help of our great sponsors:

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.


Very cool - shame only 2 sessions in english :s

I hope the place will be dotted with webcams :P
The schedule sounds great. Therefore it's even more disappointing, that the official conference of an international open source framework is held in french...
C’est la vie

but I would have liked to go there as well :-)
@Klemens: We will definitely also organize an international conference later this year... in English of course.
Yes ! Sadly, I will not be able to go to it !

At least, I discovered that a book on symfony and Doctrine is available in French. Just click on the Eyrolles link that point you to :
*wonders if French is considered closed source* :P
Well, an English conference would really be great. I hope it'll be held in Europe and not the US of A. ;-)

Also, the price is very reasonable (when I think of other conferences). Thanks!

Keep it up! Cheers, Daniel
Please! Please!
Can we have, videos of these sessions??!!
yes, would be great the whole conference to be in video.
It would be great if you could record those sessions.

Maybe then some people would kind enough to provide subtitles in English language. AFAIK Dailymotion provides subtitles for movies, so it could be uploaded there.
I hope that someone will publish videos with english subtitles. That would be perfect.
On the one hand you try to develop an OS-Framework with an international community, on the other hand you arrange a conference in frech, thats very poor....
@Chris: As I said, we will definitely organize a conference in English later this year. Also, there have been 2 symfony camp organized the last two years. It is easier for us to first organize a small french conference to see how it goes, before organizing a much more bigger one for the international community.
Last second sounds so calm
