Performance Horizon Group know how important it is to spread the word about great local user groups so they have decided to supply a “phpne” logo sticker to everyone attending the talk. They are currently looking for people to join them, so if you are looking for the next big challenge take a look at their site.

Symfony Components & Friends by @michaelpeacock

The symfony components and their friends (twig, pimple and silex) provide excellent reusable solutions to common web-related problems, from application routing to dependency injection to template rendering. In this talk we will walk through some of the core components and their friends and see how easy they are to use within our own projects. The components work well both in new projects and in existing projects via extending funtionality or as a basis for refactoring.
