Workshop descriptions:

Getting ready for Symfony 5 by Nicolas Grekas - Symfony

Symfony 4 changes the way you develop web applications. During this workshop, you will discover the new best practices recommended by the Symfony Core team. You will 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. This workshop will teach you the new way of using the components, whether you know them already or not.

Building API-driven apps with API Platform by Kévin Dunglas -

API Platform is a popular framework built on top of Symfony to create API-driven web projects. It includes:
  • super-powerful, server component to create REST and GraphQL web APIs in minutes
  • Progressive Web Apps (React, Vue.js, Next.js, Quasar) and native mobile apps (React Native) generator
  • beautiful Material Design administration interface (React Admin)
  • testing framework
  • Docker and Kubernetes configuration for dev, testing and production
After an overview of modern API patterns and formats (REST, OpenAPI, hypermedia, HATEOAS, JSON-LD, Hydra,, GraphQL...), we'll 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).

In this workshop, we will 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.
