2012’s event inspired everyone, from the Symfony devotee to the enthusiastic learner and this year we’re back for more. Hosted by SensioLabs UK, Symfony Live 2013 will take place at Glaziers Hall on the banks of the river Thames, and will involve a series of talks from industry leading experts.

The training day

The training day will involve two fast track, hands-on workshops from leading lights in the Symfony two community. With two workshop options:

Introduction to Symfony2 – aimed at developers who have little experience of Symfony2, this course will give an insightful introduction to the framework covering all the basics in one single day. The day begins with lessons in installation and configuration, covers further insight such as the twig template engine and debugging tools, and ends with offering some best practice tips.

Going further with Symfony2 – aimed at experienced Symfony2 developers, who want to get to grips with some of the more advanced features. This hands-on course will dive straight into mastering the dependency injection container configuration, writing cacheable content for an HTTP cache such as Varnish, form based authentication and some authorisation rules.

The conference day

The most highly anticipated of the event, Friday is conference day and with over 200 delegates anticipated there will certainly be a buzz around Symfony. Similar to the format we used last year, we’ll have an opening keynote, followed by 2 tracks of insightful technical talks then closing remarks and a social event.

The Call for Papers is open until the 30th June so if you have a talk to contribute to the event, don’t miss out. Submission topics include Symfony, Drupal, BDD and quality PHP development in general. First time speakers and veterans of the conference circuit are all welcome to apply.
