Tuesday November 19th:

  • Building API-driven apps with API Platform by Kévin Dunglas - Les-Tilleuls.coop. Learn how to use and extend the most popular features of the API Platform: data providers and persisters, docs, pagination, validation, sorting, filtering, authentication, authorization, content negotiation, Mercure live update and much more! This hands-on workshop is focused on the server part of the framework (PHP).
  • Getting ready for Symfony 5 by Nicolas Grekas - Symfony. Learn how to install third-party packages with Symfony Flex, configure your application with environment variables or exploit the new features of the dependency injection container. You will also learn how to prepare a Symfony 4 app for version 5, to be released next November. EventDispatcher, Security, Cache, etc - many important components have been improved, which means some part of them have been deprecated, and replaced by updated interface.
  • Practical Design Patterns with Symfony (two days) by Titouan Galopin - SymfonyInsight lead. Discover Software Architecture from the point of view of a Symfony developer. We will discuss the Design Patterns implemented by the framework and learn how these patterns can help you develop better Symfony applications. We will also implement the most important of these patterns in a real-world Symfony application in order to give you effective practical tools for your next project.
  • Practical Doctrine ORM within Symfony apps by Julien Pauli - SensioLabs trainer & PHP core contrib. Learn how to create entities and mappings and practice with some querying scenarios to understand how the ORM works and how it can help us. This workshop will teach what a UnitOfWork is, what are N+1 queries and how you can prevent them. Basically, we will cover everything you need to know to persist your data efficiently with Dotrine ORM.
  • Create an eCommerce website with Sylius by Sylius Core Team Members Łukasz Chruściel and Mateusz Zalewski. Sylius is the only e-commerce framework entirely based on Symfony (with Symfony 4 and Flex support), crafted with clean code and BDD. Join us and see that eCommerce development can be easy and fun. During the workshops, we will together start with vanilla Sylius configuration and customize it to our needs. After the workshops, you will have a good insight into Sylius structure and its core concepts.

Wednesday November 20th:

  • Profiling Symfony & PHP apps by Nicolas Grekas - ex-Blackfire CTO. 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.
  • Practical Forms with Symfony by Julien Pauli - SensioLabs trainer & PHP core contrib. This workshop will teach you the core of the Symfony Form component: its architecture, how to validate submitted input with built-in and custom validators, what are form types and how to use them, their hierarchy and their options, using DTOs to decouple forms from your entities, using Data Tranformers to automate data treatments, writing Form extensions to push forward the limits of factorisation, etc.
  • Writing Modern JS with Symfony & Webpack Encore by Ryan Weaver - SymfonyCasts. In this workshop, we'll use the Webpack Encore library from Symfony to quickly bootstrap a sophisticated asset setup, complete with minification, SASS processing, free versioning, automatic code-rewriting to support older browsers and more! Everything you need to start writing great JavaScript quickly. We'll also learn about using JavaScript modules, how to bootstrap a framework (like Vue) and other important modern practices.
  • Knowing your state machines - Symfony Workflow by Tobias Nyholm - Happyr CTO & Founder. The state pattern will help you move complexity from being all over your code to one or more state machines. Tobias' workshop will introduce state machines, show you how to identify uses of them, and implement them in your Symfony application in an object-oriented manner using the Symfony Workflow component.
  • Practical Design Patterns with Symfony (day 2) by Titouan Galopin - SymfonyInsight lead.
