Online SymfonyTour 2021: pre-conference workshops are announced

We’ve recently announced our Online SymfonyTour for the first semester of 2021. All Call for Papers are currently open, send in your talk proposals!

Each online conference comes with 2 days of online pre-conference workshops, organized on the days before the conference. We’re pleased to announce the pre-conference workshop topics, either 2-day workshops or a combo of two 1-day workshop:

  • Mastering OOP & Design Patterns (2-day workshop): Object Oriented Programming (OOP) goes beyond the design of classes and interfaces. It includes a wide variety of concepts such as objects, entities, value objects, services, design models, SOLID principles, calisthenics, coupling, etc. Mastering OOP often requires several years of experience. This workshop will help you to better understand all these concepts in order to write more maintainable, robust and testable object-oriented code. You will also discover techniques to reduce the complexity of your code and make your classes more specific and therefore simpler. You will also learn how to recognize and exploit the power of design models (factory, adapter, composite, decorator, mediator, strategy, etc.).
  • Symfony 5: the fast track (2-day workshop): This training is from the book "Symfony 5: The Fast Track" by Fabien Potencier. During 2 days, you will learn how to build a Symfony application from A to Z using new practices and new components. For those who are new to Symfony, this training is an opportunity to discover a range of capabilities to leverage. For the more experienced ones, the Symfony 4 development cycle changes the game. This training will be useful for them to refresh their knowledge and gain in efficiency from day to day. We will build an application with all the infrastructure of modern apps: database, application and HTTP cache server, message bus for background processing, APIs and SPAs, etc. On the menu: Flex, Mailer, Notifier, Workflow, Messenger, API Platform, HttpClient, String, Webpack Encore, etc.
  • Building modular and interactive applications with Symfony UX (1-day workshop): In December 2020, Symfony unveiled a new tool: Symfony UX. This workshop will introduce you to Symfony UX and the tools it relies on: Webpack Encore, Stimulus, Jest and Testing Library. We will discover how to build modular and interactive interfaces using small reusable JavaScript components that can be easily tested automatically. We will also discover how to rely on Symfony UX and Swup to build advanced User Experiences using the micro-frontends approach. Finally, we will discuss a little bit about React and how it can be used inside of your Symfony UX applications to increase even more its capabilities.
  • Profiling Symfony & PHP apps (1-day workshop): It is difficult to improve what is not measurable! Profiling an application should always be the first step in trying to improve its performance. With this workshop, learn how to identify performance issues in your application and adopt the best profiling practices in your daily development habits. This workshop will use the Blackfire.io tool to help you identify performance leaks.
