Licences by Stefan Rapp

The OSS ecosystem is very important for every developer out there. To be of use, this contribution will discuss licensing situations for laravel & symfony frameworks (MIT-License), the PHP language itslef (PHP/BSD License) and as a storage backend MySQL (GPL). Things to look out for and stuff to feel safe & cosy around lawyers.

This contribution will also try to be serious but will not succeed.

symfony Forms: Past, Present and Future by Bernhard Schussek

The Symfony2 Form component is a critical part for many Symfony2 applications. As such, we have been constantly improving the component to handle the many different use cases of our users and to lower the barrier to entry for newcomers. As seasoned Symfony2 developer, all
these changes can be sometimes hard to track. What about backwards compatibility? Will your business-critical applications break? And the questions don't stop there. How can you get up to scratch with the latest best practices? What can you expect from future versions? And how can you get involved to help things move faster? I will try to answer these and many other questions in my talk.
