The Symfony blog has pointed out some of the interesting events that'll be coming up in their community including conferences, training and symfony camp.
The end of the year will be very interesting for the symfony project with a lot of opportunities to meet the community and to learn symfony.
Conference that symfony will have a presence at include this talk happening in Spetember and this talk at the International PHP Conference. Sensio Labs will be providing training classes on both symfony 1.0 and symfony 1.1 to those interested.
symfony Camp will also be happening in September. If you plan to attend, be sure to reserve your space now!
