Symfony2, by many considered to be the leading PHP framework these days, was totally rewritten to provide a set of decoupled components for the Symfony community to build a full-stack "HTTP framework".
Thanks to the concept of
Bundles there are now over 1k ready made high level OSS packages which further extend the core functionality.
This talk will walk the audience through a simple Symfony2 application illustrating with real code how all the pieces work together.
Speaker Lukas Smith has been doing PHP since before the turn of the century. His involvement in the PHP community has seen him speak at conferences around the globe, becoming co-release-manager for PHP 5.3 and co-creator of the first Symfony2 component-based framework even before there was Symfony2. These days he spends most of his open souce time on Symfony2 as well as PHPCR, a port of the Java Content Repository specification to PHP.
