Only 6 weeks left before SymfonyWorld 2020! We are so happy to meet you online from December 1st to 5th for our first ever 100% online event, join us for:

  • Hackday: December 5th all day via Slack, open to everyyone

We’ve already announced the first selected conference speakers who will be speaking online at SymfonyWorld 2020. Read the latest speakers’ announcement. Today, we're delighted to unveil more conference speakers, please welcome:

  • Alexander M. Turek, Developer, Consultant and Symfony Core Team member, will be there to speak about "Standalone Dependency Injection". The DependencyInjection component is the glue that holds our application together. In a modern Symfony application, we rely on auto-wiring, auto-configuration and auto-discovery to magically generate the correct dependency tree for our application. But how do those automatisms work under the hood? What if they weren’t there?

  • Kévin Dunglas, creator of the API Platform framework, Mercure.rocks and Vulcain.rocks protocols and Symfony Core Team member, will explain you "What's new in API Platform?". API Platform is a popular framework to build API-driven projects. The server component is built on top of Symfony. It enables to create modern, extensible and secure web APIs very easily: design the public data model, and that's all, you get a fully-featured API! Since its introduction during SymfonyLive Paris 2015, API Platform evolved a lot! It is now recognized as the easiest and most powerful set of tools to build and use new web APIs, even outside of the PHP world. During this talk, will discover the new best practices and the unknown gems provided by the framework.

  • Andreas Braun, Senior Engineer, will share his experience about "Dropping ACID: Schema design for e-commerce". When designing a schema for e-commerce applications, we have to keep certain things in mind: data retention rules require duplicating large chunks of data, leading to complex schemas in any relational database. Modern database systems can help us solve this problem, but we seldom use their features when designing schemas. In this talk, we will take a look at some strategies on how to design more efficient schemas for certain database systems, and how to effectively drop ACID at work.

  • Neal Brooks, PHP engineer who likes using Symfony, will tell you everything about "The absolute beginner's guide to Domain Driven Design with Symfony". DDD is one of the most effective ways to address business problems, but it can be overwhelming to get started with. In this talk we'll demystify the terminology and work out the most important aspects of DDD you'll need to get you going. Then, by exploring and implementing a sample business domain, we'll discover such things as: - How DDD entities differ Doctrine entities - What an aggregate root actually is - How to organise your code - How to define a bounded context - How a domain service differs from an application service Finally, we'll wire it all together with Symfony 5. So if you've been wanting to get started with DDD for a while but never knew how or where to start then this talk is for you.

About 30 speakers will be sharing their experience and knowledge, you'll be able to listen to 30+ talks at 2 different hours.
