Test Driven Development The Right Way: 1-day Workshop by Diego Aguiar, Web Developer, SymfonyCasts.

Have you ever wanted to learn about TDD but never got a chance to learn it properly? Do you think TDD only slows you down? You don’t know what to do when getting stuck? Attend this workshop and learn what TDD really is by practice and add this methodology to your developer toolkit.

In this workshop, you’ll learn about: How to develop a complex feature from scratch by applying TDD using PHPUnit, The anatomy of a clean test: Arrange, Act, & Assert, Going faster. Demystify the myth that TDD only slows you down, and many other useful tricks…

Symfony 5/6: the fast track: 2-day Workshop by Nicolas Grekas, Symfony General Manager and Symfony Core-Team.

This training is from the book „Symfony 6: The Fast Track“ by Fabien Potencier. In 2 days, it will teach you how to build a Symfony application from A to Z using new practices and new components. For those who are new to Symfony, this training is an opportunity to discover capabilities of Symfony. For more experienced devs, it’s an opportunity to know about and to discover the latest features and best practices.

We will build an application with all the infrastructure of modern apps: database, application and HTTP cache server, message bus for background processing, etc. We will start from the basics with the installation of a skeleton application, the creation of a data model and a „backoffice“, then we will add screens for users, a security system to partition rights. We will enrich the business rules to send notifications, send emails, manage a publication workflow, etc. Finally, we will optimize the application for production through HTTP and application caches, through asset management (JS/CSS/images) and secrets management. To secure each step, we will write tests to guarantee non-regressions.

On the menu: Flex, DependencyInjection, Mailer, Workflow, Messenger, HttpClient, String, etc.

RESTful Webservices in Symfony: 1-day Workshop by Jan Schädlich, Software Developer Freelance.

Nowadays RESTful Apis are powering the web and are used in almost every web application. In this workshop you will learn the fundamental principles of REST and how you can implement a RESTful APIs using Symfony. We will start with the basics of REST, continue with some more advanced topics like Serialization, Content-Negotiation and Security and eventually talk about Testing, Documentation and Versioning of APIs. Besides all the theory the attendees can deepen their learnings on every topic while doing the provided coding challenges.

Profiling Symfony & PHP apps: 1-day Workshop by Clément Bertillon, Lead developer, SensioLabs.

It is difficult to improve what is not measurable! Profiling an application should always be the first step in trying to improve its performance. With this workshop, learn how to identify performance issues in your application and adopt the best profiling practices in your daily development habits. This workshop will use the tool to help you identify performance leaks.

Mastering OOP & Design Patterns: 2-day Workshop by Alexandre Salomé, Director of Engineering,

Object Oriented Programming (OOP) goes beyond the design of classes and interfaces. It includes a wide variety of concepts such as objects, entities, value objects, services, design models, SOLID principles, calisthenics, coupling, etc. Mastering OOP often requires several years of experience.

This workshop will help you to better understand all these concepts in order to write more maintainable, robust and testable object-oriented code. You will also discover techniques to reduce the complexity of your code and make your classes more specific and therefore simpler. You will also learn how to recognize and exploit the power of design models (factory, adapter, composite, decorator, mediator, strategy, etc.).

Introduction to API Platform 3.2: 1-day Workshop by Antoine Bluchet, Lead developper, Les Tilleuls.

API Platform makes it easy to create powerful, fast, and standards-compliant web APIs. API Platform also contains all the tools you need to develop state-of-the-art web and mobile applications that use your APIs. The last version of our favorite framework brings an improved developer experience loved by our community. During this 1-day workshop with the creators of API Platform, you’ll learn how to:

create a new API Platform 3 project or install API Platform in an existing Symfony app
leverage the main features of the framework to build a REST (HATEOAS) web API
plug your own domain and persistence layer with state providers and state processors
add validation, authentication, and authorization to your API
benefit from RDF, JSON-LD, Hydra, and the other web standards supported out of the box by API Platform
expose a GraphQL and a REST API at the same time, without changing a single line of code

use API Platform Admin, a powerful hypermedia client leveraging RDF and React Admin to build B2B apps

Having Fun & Being Productive with Symfony UX & AssetMapper: 1-day Workshop by Ryan Weaver, Tutorial Storyteller, SymfonyCasts.

In this workshop, we’ll get hands-on to build a modern, SPA-style app using my favorite stack for frontend development: Symfony, AssetMapper, Stimulus, Turbo LiveComponents & Tailwind CSS. Starting from scratch, we’ll move quickly & use these tools to tackle a bunch of common, but complex frontend problems: dynamic form fields, reusable UI components, modals, popovers, and more. Along the way, we’ll see the new syntax, get deep with AssetMapper & leverage Stimulus libraries to help us code less, move & love the process.

Develop your app, with a modern Symfony CMS – Sulu: 1-day Workshop by Oliver Kossin, Symfony Developer, QOSSMIC.

If there is one thing that the market surely doesn’t need anymore, it would be yet another CMS. So why give a new, young CMS a chance? First of all, Sulu is not a classic content management system. It is not exclusively about placing content and presenting it. It is and can do much more. Sulu tries to bridge the gap between classic or rather complex Symfony applications and content management systems, without making concessions in one direction or the other. How can this work? Where would Sulu be a good choice and where possibly a rather bad choice? Why is Sulu worth a look especially for experienced Symfony developers ? Let’s jump into the basics of Sulu and learn together how to integrate it even in complex Symfony applications.
