October eZ Publish Meetup

Oct 8, 2014 · New York, United States of America

Scheduled alongside Symfony Live New York, the eZ Publish New York User Group Meetup welcomes Symfony, PHP and Open Source developers to our October Meeting at Work Bench NYC. This month's guest speakers include André Romcke (eZ’s Vice President of Engineer), Joe Kepley (Director of Development at Blend Interactive), and Ryan Weaver (CEO and Trainer at KNP Labs & KNP University).

Meetup Agenda:

André, who is visiting from Norway and representing eZ at Symfony Live, will address the meetup on the technical features of eZ Publish Platform 5.3 & 5.4 as well as some of the new features developers and users can expect in future versions. This will be a great opportunity to ask questions to one of eZ Publish’s influencers and visionaries.

Joe Kepley, in town to attend the Symfony Live conference, will present on the organization of front-end workflow, demonstrating some of the tools used to create and maintain simple, performant, well-documented CSS and javascript languages. With extensive development projects and experience under his belt, Joe will have some great insights and recommendations for our front-end developers attending.

Ryan Weaver - the lead of the Symfony2 documentation team - will drop in to introduce himself and talk briefly about the state and what's changing right now in the world of Symfony2 documentation, educational resources and overall developer experience.

We are very excited to have our guest speakers joining us at this months meetup. As usual, we will have time for Q & A and networking after the presentations. Snacks, beer and drinks will be served.
