The Symfony Live Unconference Schedule

So, with Day 1 of the Symfony Live conference already well under way, we now have a nice schedule to present to you. During the day, many people approached us with very interesting talks they wanted to present during the Symfony Live unconference tomorrow.

The Symfony Live unconference is simply a parallel track to the main conference. So instead of having 2 tracks, like you have today, there are three tracks! It's harder to make a choice between the tracks, but I trust you will have some great content to attend.

So what topics will be discussed during the Symfony Live unconference? Here's the schedule:

9:30 - You are the community - Stefan Koopmanschap
A look at the symfony community and how it compares to other PHP communities. About who is part of the community. Also: Stefan wants feedback on what he (and the symfony team) can do to improve your experience and help you contribute.

10:30 - E-commerce in Symfony2 (discussion) - Everyone! :)
A discussion about Symfony2 E-commerce. Let's see if a project similar to the Symfony2 CMF can be started, to finally build a good PHP-based e-commerce solution

15:30 - Real time event dispatching - Peter Dietrich

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.
