My first Zend Conference was a blast

Fabien Potencier

October 24, 2009

This was my first Zend Conference, and I must say I had a great time there. The organization was top notch, there were plenty of good sessions, and the unconference topics proved to be very interesting.

I've also met and talked with a lot of great people. I have particularly enjoyed the talks I had with the Zend team, and with all the people I had email conversations with in the past but never had the chance to meet in person.

Beside my talk about how to use symfony within a Zend Framework project, I have also held an uncon session about Twig, and took part in a roundtable about Dependency Injection.

If you have not attended Zend Con this year, most of the presentations are now available online on both slideshare and joind.

Last but not the least, I have been invited yesterday by the San Francisco symfony user group to talk about Symfony 2, and I had a great time talking with SF symfony users.

Thanks again Zend for inviting me this year, and I hope to come back next year.

I am sorry to be a bit out of topic, I just want to say, I love what you have done with the symfony framework project. I am still trying to understand it and I hope symfony grows and becomes big here in South Africa as well. Great job!!
