It's summer and it's time for an open air meetup! Join us for an discussion about the different frameworks and some cold drinks!

We are meeting on Tuesday, August 05, again at 18:30 at Stockwerk. The Open Air Location is right beside the Stockwerk, so we'll serve drinks and snacks at Stockwerk and head over to the event location afterwards.


We are having 6 members of the community taking the side of one framework each. Together with a moderator there will be a discussion about different aspects of frameworks. We'll look into how each of the frameworks differs from the others and where they choose the same approaches. The audience will be asked to participate in the discussion. Afterwards, we'll all know which framework is best for a particular project.

Our participants are:

• Philipp Bergsmann (Flow)

• Johannes Nagl (CakePHP)

• Florian Eckerstorfer (symfony)

• Alex Raskin (slim)

• Roman Kuba (Laravel)

• Thomas Subera (Zend)

The topics we'll discuss will be pretty high level in order to find out where the frameworks differ. We will discuss things like Rapid Application Development, Convention over configuration, Testing, Stability/Roadmap/Community and so on. You are encouraged to bring your own questions - Just keep it high level so everybody can learn!
