November 17-18: 2 days of conference.

We’re very happy to announce today the first four selected speakers of SymfonyCon Disneyland Paris 2022. This year, we have the pleasure to welcome:

Sebastian Bergmann, Co-Founder and Principal Consultant, thePHP.cc, will talk about „The PHP Stack’s Supply Chain“.
All modern software is built using third-party software components, which may come with their own dependencies. Do you know everything about the components that make up the foundation of your software? What is the PHP software stack’s supply chain? In this presentation, Sebastian Bergmann paints a picture as complete as possible, covering topics from software supply chain security concerns to the funding of Open Source software development.
Marion Hurteau, Web Developer, will speak about „Dynamic Validation with Symfony“.
It might happen on some of your API’s endpoints, that the object your app is waiting for depends on the data sent. Say, the user sends {type:foobar, data: XXX}, then the XXX formats will depend on the type foobar.
So how can one validate this data if we don’t even know its type ?
Well come on in, I’ll show you how ! You can actually validate dynamic data by using the most of the features available in Symfony.

Diego Aguiar, Web developer, will talk about „Advanced Test Driven Development“.
If you love TDD and want to improve in this programming discipline, you’re in the right place. Attend this talk, and you’ll learn about:

What TDD really is
Techniques for making your test suite more reliable
What does getting stuck mean, and how to get out of it
Why mocking is more about collaboration
Acceptance tests and more!

Ondřej Mirtes, Creator of PHPStan, will give a talk about „PHPStan: Advanced Types“.
To develop safer and more reliable applications, we don’t have to wait for progress in PHP language itself anymore. Plenty of advanced concepts known from other languages like generics, precise array shapes, or number ranges can be expressed in PHPDocs and verified by static analysis.
In this talk I’ll introduce the new types that have recently been added to PHPStan and show you how to use them in practice.
You will learn:

How you can use PHPDocs to provide and document extra type information to static analysers, IDEs, and developers working with your code.
Advanced types that don’t yet exist natively in PHP, but can be used in PHPDocs for developing of more type-safe codebase
Type theory about union vs. intersection types

We are very happy to welcome these fantastic speakers and have their talks scheduled at the conference! Don’t miss the conference, book now your ticket for SymfonyCon Disneyland Paris 2022!
