A english-speaking group for PHP Developers in and around Amsterdam. Our goal is to grow the local community, search for new developers and spread knowledge and resources.
Amsterdam is a very active technology center for the Netherlands, many companies and people from various countries have chosen this area to settle down and start their companies. PHP has a big role in this and for that reason we created a User Group focused on this area and in doing activities in english to acommodate all of these developers.
Come meet with us to stay up to date with the latest in PHP and its ecosystem as well as meeting new people and networking.

Talk: Developing Symfony applications in 2019
Speaker: Fabien Potencier
Fabien Potencier discovered the Web in 1994, at a time when connecting to the Internet was still associated with the harmful strident sounds of a modem. Being a developer by passion, he constantly looked for better ways to build websites. Fabien founded the Symfony project in 2004 to fulfill this goal.
Fabien is a serial-entrepreneur, and among other companies, he founded Sensio in 1998 - which became SensioLabs in 2012 -, a software company providing products, services, and technical support for the Open-Source Symfony framework. In 2018, he founded Symfony SAS, the company behind Symfony, the PHP Open-Source framework to focus on creating a new generation of SaaS solutions, designed to help PHP developers improve their code and their Symfony experience: SymfonyCloud, SymfonyInsight and the Symfony certification. On top of that, the company aims to lead the Open-Source project, its community and to organize the Symfony conferences.
Fabien is also the creator of several other Open-Source projects, a writer, a blogger, a speaker at international conferences, and the happy father of two wonderful kids.
