First selected speakers at SymfonyWorld 2021 Online 2021 Winter Conference
The SymfonyWorld Online 2021 Winter Edition conference (December 9-10, 2021) will take place a few days after the release of Symfony 6. That's why it's a great opportunity to learn all about the latest Symfony 6 features.
Today we're announcing the first eight talks of the conference.
Symfony 6 is the culmination of 2 years of hard work by the community. With PHP 8.0 as the minimum supported version, Symfony 6 is also an opportunity to embrace new language features.
Web applications get more complex over time. Start hiring people, and all of a sudden the code does not talk in the same business language. It becomes harder to change.
How to improve performance testing of your application? The best way is to include performance test into your CI pipeline!
During the past two years, a lot of things have changed in Symfony Security. While the main concepts are the same, features have been changed, removed or introduced.
Web agencies build dozens of applications that are in operation for a long time. Ultimately those apps generate a lot of legacy code, which grows with every new Symfony and PHP versions.
Alexander M. Turek and his team recently took over a legacy codebase, with zero tests and a full bug tracker. As an experiment, they introduced a static code analysis tool.
In this talk you'll learn what a static code analyzer can do for you. What issues deserve to be fixed? How can I help the tool understand my code? More details.
Twig is an incredibly powerful and useful template engine. In this talk, you'll learn good practices (for SEO, performance, etc.), how to extend Twig and smart tricks you probably never thought about.
In addition to the above talks, Fabien Potencier will deliver the opening keynote. The contents have not been unveiled yet, but the title give us a clue: "Removing SPoFs" (SPoF = single point of failure). More details.
In the coming weeks we'll announce more exciting talks to complete the rest of the schedule. Recently we also announced the workshops of the conference, which give you an online hands-on learning experience.
