After a long summer it's time to get together again and talk code!
We've been making some adjustments to the event schedule and it now starts at 17:30 and continues from there on. Participation is free, but limited.
The location is set to Kaarle XII and the date is set to Thursday, September 17th. Our excellent speaker lineup follows.
Romain Neutron from Blackfire: Performance is no more a curse
I bet you are writing unit tests for your apps; if not, you probably feel ashamed. But what about performance? Everyone is talking about it but very few people actually integrate performance into their development workflow... After some quick theory, I will show you how to use Blackfire that makes it so easy to profile your apps that you won't have any more excuses anymore for not doing it. Finally, I will talk about my new holy grail: Continuous Performance Profiling.
Jani Tarvainen from Exove: Symfony and Content Management
Content Management may appear simple to a layman, but when you end up working with multiple sites, multilingual, versioning, media assets and real user needs... it is not trivial. Symfony has garnered an impressive roster of popular CMSes adopting it. This is a great thing for developers, as you can now use your skills across different tools - without huge investment in application specific Templating engines, etc. This talk will present some tools that you can use across different systems.

Bertrand Maugain from eZ Systems: eZ Platform Search
Search is a cornerstone in the eZ Platform architecture, powering not just full-text user search but all queries for generating lists of content. Several additional search features are coming out later this fall and next year, and search will become even more advanced, more user friendly, and more developer friendly.
