Fabien Potencier

Paris, France

CEO, Symfony / Blackfire.io / SensioLabs

About

Fabien Potencier discovered the Web in 1994, at a time when connecting
to the Internet was still associated with the harmful strident sounds of
a modem. Being a developer by passion, he constantly looked for better
ways to build websites. Fabien founded the Symfony project in 2004 to
fulfill this goal.

Fabien is a serial-entrepreneur, and among other companies, he founded
Sensio in 1998 - which became SensioLabs in 2012 -, a software company
providing products, services, and technical support for the Open-Source
Symfony framework. In 2018, he founded Symfony SAS, the company behind
Symfony, the PHP Open-Source framework to focus on creating a new generation of
SaaS solutions, designed to help PHP developers improve their code and their Symfony
experience: SymfonyCloud, SymfonyInsight and the Symfony certification. On top of that,
the company aims to lead the Open-Source project and the community and organize the Symfony conferences.

Fabien is also the creator of several other Open-Source projects, a
writer, a blogger, a speaker at international conferences, and the happy
father of two wonderful kids.

Fabien Potencier is a member of the community since October 2005.
