ViennaPHP June Gathering

In June, we are teaming once again with the symfony Usergroup and bringing you talks containing much knowledge. As always, there will be pizza and drinks thanks to our great sponsors and we'll host a After-Gathering-Party as well.


• "Welcome" by Sebastian Göttschkes

• tba

• "Licences" by Stefan Rapp

• "symfony Forms: Past, Present and Future" by Bernhard Schussek

• "Confessions of an Intermediate Programmer" by Michael Bromley

• "After-Gathering-Party" featured by StockWerk, 1. floor kitchen/bar



Jobs, new Open Source Projects, Collaboration, Events


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.

Confessions of an Intermediate Programmer by Michael Bromley

Some lessons learned by a self-taught PHP developer about faulty self-estimation, bad practices and humility.


Stockwerk, the awesome Co-Working Space in Vienna, is supporting us with a place to meet and helps us organize

drunomics, who are doing drupal development and are supporting the drupal development, are looking for a web developer.

• OpenForce, a software development company, is looking for Senior Software Developers!

• easyname, domain and hosting company in Vienna


Tell us in the comments, talk to Sebastian or Stefan on the meetup or hit us up on twitter or facebook. Everything interesting to PHP developers is worth talking about!

    Stefan, many thanks indeed for the very useful talk on software licensing.

    In the event that you might be persuaded to do further talks in the future, would you consider touching upon the subject of privacy and data protection, from either an Austrian or EU perspective?

    Many of us are probably dealing with user data which may fall under the scope of those laws, and I think it would be interesting to have an idea of what is expected of us as data custodians from a legal point of view (and then there is customer trust, which is a different kind of animal). I believe this is relevant in light of the current sensitivities around this issue, and also given the role of Austrian courts in challenging the EU Data Retention Directive (2006/24/EC), a distinct but closely related issue (cf. for press release [PDF]).

    As someone with both law and coding backgrounds you're in a bit of a privileged position here. :)

      Yeah, thanks Stefan! In the privacy issue I would be interested too. Plus the cookie question - which (in my view) is getting more and more ridiculous ;-)

    Thanks for the amazing talk Stefan.

    I looked up jQuery's dual licensing. They removed the GPL version in Sept. 2012. Not sure how they did this.

    Hi everybody,

    We are organizing WebCamp Zagreb, a web tech conference on October 4th and expecting more than 800 visitors this year (from 600 last year).

    If there are any interested speakers, join our call for paper and by submiting a talk get rewarded with a ticket!

    More about the conference can be found on . Also, there will be PHP conference on Oct 2nd in Zagreb too, it's not yet announced so hash hash :)

    BTW. It was really nice to see you all in May, hopefully there will be even more interaction with ZgPHP in the future!

    As Julian is on holiday, he has to cancel his talk! But fear not, we were able to get another speaker: Michael Bromley will talk about being an Intermediate Programmer. He has written a popular blog post on the topic, so except some great content:

    Hi! Möchte sehr gerne mein heute online gestelltes Framework für die Umsetzung von datenbankbasierenden Webanwendungen vorstellen:

    Wäre in dem Gathering noch Platz, Zeit und vor allem Interesse dafür?

    • Sebastian G.

      Hi! We are planning a meetup with MongoDB and Postgres talks in July. Your talk would be a perfect fit. Would you be up for that?

      Hi Sebastian! Thanks for the possibility to talk in July. I welcome it!
