Week 36 in Review


What are the top 3 things you love about eZ Platform?

Help us grow by answering 3 simple questions. This Google Form will remain active up until the eZ Conference in Paris in October. Our purpose is to allow the community to identify the positive points that will then be shown on the Developer Hub. This will help us grow our community, and eZ Platform.

The Road to 500 Million Symfony Downloads

Symfony 2.0 was released on July 28th, 2011. Five years later, we're on the verge of achieving an incredible milestone: 500 million Symfony packages downloaded by the PHP community.

The Symfony project has prepared a dashboard at where you can view the current number of downloads. They also announced a raffle, where you can send in some photos on Twitter with the hashtag #500million. When the milestone is reached, they will pick the most original photos and raffle some cool prizes. Check out the full article.

With eZ Platform using Symfony’s full stack, lets join this contest and send in some photos. No reason not to plug eZ Platform or Pulley in your photos!
