The Symfony Open-source Community
Talk by Zan Baldwin (50 minutes)

The Symfony project is more than just a codebase; it is a community around what has become a professional standard within the PHP ecosystem. We’ll explore this community and its members, the direction its leadership is taking it in, different ways you can get involved beyond just making a pull request, and how community participation can benefit and enrich your life.

Dungeons, Dragons & Developers
Talk by Matt Brunt (50 minutes)

You enter the dungeon, as the echoes of your footsteps sound around you, something catches your eye - is that… oh, oh no. You grab your trusty sword and with your fellow adventurers, you seek to overcome the mighty challenge that lays ahead of you: building software. This talk is a look at some of the parallels between Dungeons and Dragons, and software development. We’ll see how lessons learned through delving into dungeons and fighting monsters with a party of adventurers can help teams of developers when building software in the real world. Are you ready to join me in a mighty quest for better software?
