Introduction to Symfony2
A look at PHP framework Symfony2
October 1st, 2012
As a special presentation, we welcome Juozas Kaziukenas to give us the latest on a key PHP framework, Symfony2.
If you don't know what Symfony2 is, you *have* to come, you can even ignore the remainder of this abstract. On the other hand, you might have heard of this new framework called Symfony2, but never got a chance to use it. This talk goes through the main futures and benefits of Symfony2 framework and most importantly tries to apply them to practical use cases and how those would be solved. In the end, you'll leave with a better understanding of why this framework (arguably) currently has the fastest growing user base and very likely you'll join it too.
