Two weeks ago, I had the chance to attend Symfony Live 2012 in Berlin. At first, I tried to get a ticket by submitting several proposals for talks. This didn’t work out but the organizers were very kind and invited me to attend the conference for free!
A couple of days later, I read about the Symfony2 Framework Certification. I had passed some certifications before (namely Zend Certified Engineer PHP5.3, Oracle Certified Professional (OCP), MySQL 5 Developer, and Scrum Product Owner Certification) and thought this might be a good chance to deepen my Symfony2 knowledge. Mayflower’s reaction to my wish was very positive. In they end, Mayflower covered the certification fee and gave me the chance to be the company’s first Symfony2 Certified Developer.
