Sulu attending the EU Symfony Hackathon

The European Union is organizing several hackathons as part of its FOSSA 2 program in the following months. The first hackathon will be the Symfony and API Platform Hackathon, taking place on the 6th and 7th of April 2019.

The hackathon is invite-only and 50 active Symfony contributers will attend it. So we are happy to announce that I will be one of the participants. As Sulu is built on top of Symfony we are always happy to give something back to the great Symfony community and hack with them together. We had a great experience at the Symfony Con hackday in Lisbon and Cluj.

The hackathon will focus on security, lower number of open issues and pull requests in Symfony repositories and improve its documentation, but it doesn't stop there. Another important topic is how to improve the diversity of the community.

I'm looking forward to the hackathon and want to thank the organisers Nicolas Grekas from the Symfony organisation and Jean-Fran├žois Hovinne from the European Commission.
