The results are in: Community partners at SymfonyLive London 2015

The Symfony community is only as strong as the people within it and as organisers of the largest Symfony conference in the UK, we’re always looking for new ways to support its projects and people.

This time last year, we granted free partnership at SymfonyLive London to six community projects. The eligible teams were able to raise their profile within the community thanks to a stand, lightning talks and shout out during the conference where attendees could find out what their projects were and how to get involved.

Last year Code Club, Sylius, Drupal, Pagekit, Sulu and Thelia enjoyed a free partnership with the conference and we’re delighted to run the initiative again this year.

Over the last few weeks we asked you, the community, to suggest and vote for the projects that you thought deserved a free partnership at SymfonyLive 2015.

The results

Over 1000 of you voted and drummed up support for your nominated projects with endless tweets. As voting drew to a close of Thursday evening, it became closer than ever and kept our team refreshing the results page to see who would take the top spots.

Without further ado we’re pleased to announce that the following projects will be granted free sponsorship at SymfonyLive London 2015:

  1. eZ Publish integration to Sylius eCommerce
  2. phpBB Forum Software
  3. Backbee CMS

What does this mean for attendees?

You’ll be able to meet the people behind each of the above projects. With demos and good old fashioned face-to-face chat, they’ll be able to give you the lowdown on their projects and how you can get involved.

Don’t worry if your chosen project didn’t make it through to the final three. All nominated project representatives have been offered a free pass to the event so you’ll still have the chance to join us in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Symfony framework and catch-up with the projects at the conference.

We’d like to thank all those who voted and put forward suggestions – we were amazed at the responses and it truly showed the level of support within the Symfony community.

Finally, don’t forget to grab your ticket to the conference if you haven’t already done so. Check out the line-up from speakers including: Fabien Potencier, Bernhard Schussek, James Solomon and more and workshops on BDD, DDD, and profiling Symfony applications. We’re looking forward to seeing you in September!
