symfony Camp day 2
Today was the second and last day of the symfony Camp 2008 in The Netherlands. It was the closing day of a very successful event.
We started off the morning with an excellent introduction by organizer Lambert Beekhuis on writing and distributing plugins. After that, Francois Zaninotto came up to talk about usability applied to programming, using his recent DbFinder plugin as the main example.
After a short break, Fabien did a live refactoring of some code, showing how to improve code structure in symfony. Special attention was given to the functional testing using Lime, to prevent errors in your refactoring.
After lunch, Ian Christian (a.k.a. Pookey) went on to speak about the admin generator and how it can be used and customized to fit your needs. Ian was joined on stage for the example he had by Leon van der Ree, maintainer of the extjs plugin. They was followed by Dustin Whittle explaining the Yahoo! User Interface (YUI) libraries, what they can do and what the new version will be doing.
After a short break it was time for the last presentation. I talked about the Web Debug Toolbar and how it can allow more professional, high quality software.
After that, the event was officially over, though most people stayed for some drinks and talking to eachother.
This year's edition of SymfonyCamp was a great success. See you next year!
