Symfony 5: the fast track
This training is from the book "Symfony 5: 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 practice 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, APIs and SPAs, 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, an API to allow interaction via a SPA. We will enrich the business rules to send notifications, send emails, manage internationalization, resize images, 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, Mailer, Notifier, Workflow, Messenger, API Platform, HttpClient, String, Webpack Encore, etc.
Mastering OOP & Design Patterns
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.).
Profiling Symfony & PHP apps
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 Blackfire.io tool to help you identify performance leaks.
All about Symfony's new Security Component
Symfony 5.1 and 5.2 includes a new, fresh refactoring of the Security component with the goal of decreasing complexity and giving you more power. While many things - like firewalls, authorization & voters - haven't changed much, other parts - like authentication - *has*.
In this workshop, we'll convert an application from the existing security system to the new one. Along the way, we'll get a look into the basics of how it works and a deeper view into how we can hook into it, including creating a custom authentication system.
Ready to dig into the new security component *and* love it? Let's go!
API development with API Platform
API Plaftorm has become a very popular framework for building advanced and modern API-driven web projects. This includes: - a super powerful server component based on Symfony to create hypermedia web APIs and GraphQL; - a generator of progressive web applications (ReactJS, Vue.js) and native mobile applications (React Native); - a ReactJS administration interface (ReactJS + admin on standby).
Developing headless e-commerce with Sylius
Have you heard about Sylius? Have you heard about API Platform? Recently these two projects decided to leverage the power of the Symfony ecosystem and joint efforts to deliver better quality to the eCommerce API world. Thanks to this integration, it will be easier, funnier and faster to build API-based eCommerce projects.
During this workshop, we will build a modern backend of e-commerce API based on the Sylius platform. We will build a new headless shop from scratch, extend its behavior with new functionality, and customize existing functionalities.
