Symfony: The Fast Track
The official Symfony book for newcomers and experienced developers
This book, written by Symfony's creator, lays out a pragmatic approach to developing web applications with Symfony: from scratch to production. Whether you are discovering Symfony for the first time or refreshing your knowledge, this practical guide provides the definitive introduction to modern Symfony applications.
Learn how to combine Symfony with Docker, APIs, notifications, queues & asynchronous tasks, Webpack, Single-Page Applications, and other powerful tools. By the end of this book, you'll have the confidence, understanding and a clear path to dive in and start building your next application with Symfony.
Even if the book is free to read online, buying the book helps Symfony. The proceeds from the sale go entirely to fund Symfony SAS business operations (including the salaries of people like Fabien Potencier, the Symfony creator and project leader, Nicolas Grekas, one of the largest code contributor and Javier Eguiluz, one of the largest doc contributor). In other words, purchasing the book (or gifting it to other developers) is a great way to learn Symfony and contribute to the project at the same time.
