There is a lot to learn about new eZ Publish 5 stack. The reason is simple: new architecture and new frameworks are being used. Lot of legacy knowledge is going to be deprecated, many tips & tricks you know now are no longer usable. The good thing is that the new platform is much more powerful simply because it uses Symfony framework. This blog post gives a perfect example on how to deal with problems when trying to use the new stack in your project.
The episode #18 of The eZ Publish Show was an excellent example why I am doing this show. Sometimes it looks like it doesn't make sense to spend time on this due to not so big audience. But episodes like the one we aired yesterday proved otherwise. There was some problems due to recent changes in Google+ Hangout but we managed to record it and the video is now available on Youtube.
Topic of the show was Road to eZ Publish version 5.3, I tried to get some info on what we will get with the next version from Roland Benedetti, Product Lead in eZ Systems and Bård Farstad, Head of Innovation Board. The main idea behind this episode was to learn important roadmap information in a informal discussions with guys who are steering the product.

There are many reasons why we invest so much time and effort into organizing eZ Publish Summer Camp. I will not count them here. Rather, I'll talk about a very sensitive period for the eZ community which started a year ago and will last for several years more.
In our first blog post about Symfony2 we discussed really just some basic stuff. We want to go further with this series and the next logical step is to talk about the MVC: Model View Controller implementation. It is the main pattern in which web apps are made these days. And it is also the main reason why eZ 5 is using Symfony2.
