Symfony Live 2011: Paris & San Francisco

Twitter is probably becoming the best and fastest way to spread news about Symfony. As I make more and more announcements there, I write less and less blog posts; which is unfortunate as not all Symfony users follow me on Twitter... yet.

Two Conferences

So, for the third year in a row, I and Sensio Labs are very proud to announce the Symfony Live conference for 2011 in Paris. And I am even more excited to announce that for the first time, we will also organize a Symfony Live conference in the US (in San Francisco).

The San Francisco conference will take place on February 8-9th; and the Paris conference will take place on March 3-4th.

These two conferences will be a bit special as they will focus on Symfony2 and its final release. Hopefully, we will even be able to release Symfony2 stable during the Paris conference.

Both conferences will be held in English but as the French community is actually one of the largest one in the world, we will have a French track for the Paris conference (the Paris conference will have two parallel tracks this year.)

Hacking Days

In addition to the "regular" conference, we will also organize free "hacking" days on February 5-6th in San Francisco and on March 5th in Paris. This is a unique opportunity to work together in the same room on Symfony2 topics. We will write code, fix bugs, discuss things like the Symfony CMF or PhpBB4 on Symfony2, write and translate documentation, and much more. That should be a lot of fun and everybody is free to join. Of course, we will provide free wifi, pizzas and beer.

Training Day

This year again, Sensio Labs is going to organize a training day. This year, we propose a Symfony2 training on March 2nd in Paris. The number of seats are quite limited, so you'd better register early.

Call for Speakers

We are still looking for speakers who want to share their experience on symfony and Symfony2. All sessions must be in English for the San Francisco conference and in English or French for the Paris conference. We welcome talks about any topic related to symfony, Symfony2, frameworks, Doctrine, PHPUnit, CMSes, and PHP in general.

If you want to share your real-life Symfony experience, consider submitting a session proposal before October 30th 2010 (we cover the flight and hotel for foreign speakers.) More information about how to send your proposals on the official conference website.

Help & Sponsors

We are also looking for help for the conference in San Francisco (as I don't live there). If you want to help, send me an email.

Like the previous editions, you can also sponsor the events. Information is available on the Paris and San Francisco dedicated page.

Early Bird Price

If you register before November 30th 2010, you will benefit from the early bird price (199€ for the Paris conference, and $199 for the San Francisco one.)

Last but not the least, follow us on Twitter to get the latest news about the conference. And if you tweet about the conferences, consider using the official hashtag #sflive2011.

Symfony conferences are always a great way to meet the community, learn new things, and share experiences. So, register as soon as possible and don't be shy and submit your session proposals. See you there!

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.


With the Twitte's lifetime why not use #sflive instead of #sflive2011?
