    We're using Symfony on a couple Yahoo! products and it actually makes development quite useful when seperating the logic from the templates (as we should all be doing anyway ;))

    It's definitely worth trying to get to this if you're an application developer, if only to see what Symfony can do and compare against other similar platforms.

    I've a bit more information now, note that the time has changed to 7:30.

    Time: 19:30
    Location: PSL Connect, Harborne, B17 0ED


    19:30-19:45 - Reuben sells PSL connect to us
    19:45-20:30 - Darren convinces us that Symfony is the best framework
    ~ and we ask questions
    20:30-> - Move to $pub

    I'll be doing a 30ish minute chat introducing Symfony and saying why it
    works for me

    The talk will be structured thus:
    * Why bother with a framework, surely they are all bloated and slow
    * Intro to Symfony
    * Symfony's MVC implementation
    * Dissecting a simple application
    * Areas for improvement

    ...and then Q&A

    I might come along, since I'm free Tuesday!

    I just converted our content management system to a nicely MVC thing, so it'd be interesting to do some compare and contrast.
