Talk: Developing Symfony applications in 2019
Symfony has evolved a lot during the last few years. Developing applications from Symfony 3 to Symfony 4 provides a drastically new developer experience. We have added new features, but the most important change is not related to the code... Symfony has a revamped developer experience. Starting a new project with Symfony has been dramatically improved and growing a project is more natural than before. Recent versions of Symfony allow you to stay focus on your own business logic without getting in your way with the framework plumbing. The result is less boilerplate code, more productivity, and a decoupled codebase.
Speaker: Fabien Potencier
Fabien Potencier discovered the Web in 1994, at a time when connecting to the Internet was still associated with the harmful strident sounds of a modem. Being a developer by passion, he constantly looked for better ways to build websites. Fabien founded the Symfony project in 2004 to fulfill this goal.
Fabien is a serial-entrepreneur, and among other companies, he founded Sensio in 1998 - which became SensioLabs in 2012 -, a software company providing products, services, and technical support for the Open-Source Symfony framework. In 2018, he founded Symfony SAS, the company behind Symfony, the PHP Open-Source framework to focus on creating a new generation of SaaS solutions, designed to help PHP developers improve their code and their Symfony experience: SymfonyCloud, SymfonyInsight and the Symfony certification. On top of that, the company aims to lead the Open-Source project, its community and to organize the Symfony conferences.
Fabien is also the creator of several other Open-Source projects, a writer, a blogger, a speaker at international conferences, and the happy father of two wonderful kids.
