We arrived in Paris on Saturday morning. It was snowing and very cold. We took advantage of the weekend and were able to walk around the city, including a visit to the Palace of Versailles.

Today we joined several symfony developers in a photowalk which ended in a restaurant for a mandatory dinner where we had some great discussions about Symfony, Zend Framework and many more. Matthew Weier O’Phinney, lead developer of ZF, Jon Wage (Doctrine) and Stefan Koopmanschap (symfony community manager), among others were present, which showcases how important is to attend these events by giving you direct access to core developers.

This was a great way to start the conference, even though it has not officially started. We look forward for more exciting things to come. Tomorrow is training day.
