More about Git (Symfony Live update)

Last week, I announced on this blog the migration of Symfony 2 code to Git. As a way to get your feet wet with Git, I have also recommended to read the Pro Git book by Scott Chacon.

A session about Git at Symfony Live

Today, I'm really excited to announce that Scott Chacon will be our guest at the Symfony Live Conference in February. Of course, he will host a session about Git.

Scott is a Git evangelist and developer working at He is the author of the Git Internals Peepcode PDF as well as the maintainer of the Git homepage and the Git Community Book. Scott has presented at OSCON, RuPy, KungFu Rails, RailsConf, RubyConf, Scotland on Rails, Ruby Kaigi and a number of local groups and has done corporate training on Git across the country.

During his session, he will cover what Git is and how it differs from Subversion. He will go over why it's so powerful and how it turns source control from a necessary annoyance into a powerful development tool. He will cover the technical underpinnings of the system, common tips and best practices for getting the most out of Git and ways to use Git that you may not have thought of before – as a pure content-addressable filesystem. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of Git and hopefully a new way of thinking about how to work.

The Symfony Live schedule is getting better and better with expert speakers from different horizons. You can still attend Symfony Live by registering today.

A training on Git

And if you want to learn more about Git from one of the best expert in the field, I'm really excited to announce that Scott will also host a one-day training the day after the conference. As one of the very first training about Git organized in Europe, this is a unique opportunity you won't want to miss. The training will take place at the Cité Universitaire de Paris, the same venue as the Symfony Live conference.

During this one-day training, you will learn how to use Git from the ground up. By the end of the day, you should be able to use Git effectively as a developer, and have a solid understanding of why and how it works as well as the tools to manipulate and control it to whatever ends you need.

The number of seats is limited to 40. You can book your seat today. Of course you can register even if you don't come at the Symfony Live Conference.

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.


That's really great news, even if it's been out on symfony live website for some time now.

I wasn't very excited about symfony 2 going to git at first, but seeing what benefits it brings today in some of my plugins, I think I changed my mind.

May git not be ready, or adequate, for small closed source software, I'm now pretty convinced that it's definately the way to "open" source.

Hope I'll be attending :)
500€+ p.p. for a one-day training, with "number of seats limited to 40"?! Guess that includes lunch and dinner at Le Grand Véfour?
I find it's great to see Scott speaking at Symfony Live Conference. I have profited a lot from his series of webcasts on GIT which are done in a very comprehensive way.
Lookin' forward to it in Paris...
This is excellent news! I am really looking forward to this!
Would be lovely if the session could be recorded and posted to youtube, or something... hint, hint... ;-)
I was lucky enough to see Scott speak about Git yesterday at LinuxConf Australia

He's a great speaker, and is guaranteed to teach even the most seasoned Git guru a thing or two.
When Symfony 1.4.2 is out?
Our command is waiting for him.
