💻 4 Workshop topics announcements!

Today, we are excited to announced the first part of the workshop topics:

Getting the Most Out of PHPStan: 1-day Workshop by Ondřej Mirtes, Creator of PHPStan.

PHP is nothing like compiled languages. If you make a mistake, the program will crash when the line of code with the mistake is executed. When testing a PHP application, whether manually or automatically, developers spend a lot of their time discovering mistakes that wouldn’t even compile in other languages, leaving less time for testing actual business logic.

PHPStan is a popular static analyser focused on finding bugs in your code. By leveraging the strength of PHP type system further enhanced in PHPStan itself, developers can create robust applications and discover bugs early in the development process. The aid the tool provides during refactoring is also indispensable.

In this workshop, you will learn how to install, configure and run PHPStan, and also receive tips how to write code so that PHPStan can be as powerful as possible. You will also be able to write their own PHPStan rules and extensions.

From 0 to master the translation of your app: 1-day Workshop by Mathieu Santostefano, Web Developer, JoliCode.

In this workshop you will learn how to properly implement the translation of the UI of your application, using the Translation component of Symfony. First we will create a demo app to overview simple cases of translation (static texts, input labels, error messages, etc). Then, we will improve the translation workflow to be able to work with translators, using Translation Providers. We will cover some particular cases for multiple locales and domains applications. The frontend won’t be forgotten, we will see how to use Symfony UX Translation to bring translations into dymanic frontend pages. Finally, we will see the best practices to put all of it on production, with a near real-time synchronization of your translations.

From ORM to ODM: how to start using MongoDB with Doctrine: 1-day Workshop by Andreas Braun, Lead Engineer, MongoDB.

MongoDB is more than a simple document store. Flexible schema, easy scalability, and a powerful query language make this a great database for a number of applications. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to get started with MongoDB by converting an existing application using the Doctrine ORM to use MongoDB. Setting up a cluster, designing schemas, modeling document objects, and writing complex queries are just some of the skills you’ll learn.

Road to safer applications: 1-day Workshop by Florent Morselli, Web Developer, Spomky-Labs.

This workshop aims to learn how to best use all the features offered by Symfony and its ecosystem to effectively protect our web applications. It will teach you how the internal mechanisms of the security component and bundle and how to modify the behavior and requirements of the authentication process. You will also set up other means of authentication than just the username/password pair.
