Profiling Symfony & PHP apps

Avatar of Jérôme Vieilledent Jérôme Vieilledent

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.

Mastering OOP & Design Patterns

Avatar of Alexandre Salomé Alexandre Salomé

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.).

Building modular and interactive applications with Symfony UX

Avatar of Titouan Galopin Titouan Galopin

Building great User Experiences with JavaScript is difficult. It takes time to choose reliable packages, to configure them, to integrate them in your pages, and to make your front-end code interact with the rest of your infrastructure. In December 2020, Symfony unveiled a tool that helps on these regards: Symfony UX.

This workshop will introduce you to Symfony UX and the tools it relies on: Webpack Encore, Stimulus, Jest and Testing Library. We will discover how to build modular and interactive interfaces using small reusable JavaScript components that can be easily tested automatically. We will also discover how to rely on Symfony UX and Swup to build advanced User Experiences using the micro-frontends approach. Finally, we will discuss a little bit about React and how it can be used inside of your Symfony UX applications to increase even more its capabilities.

Knowing your state machines - Symfony Workflow

Avatar of Tobias Nyholm Tobias Nyholm

Web development is not just about delivering a response, it is also about writing good code. The state pattern will help you move complexity from being all over your code to one or more state machines.

This workshop will introduce state machines, show you how to identify uses of them, and implement them in your Symfony application in an object-oriented manner using the Symfony Workflow component.

Symfony 5/6: the fast track

Avatar of Nicolas Grekas Nicolas Grekas

This training is from the book "Symfony 5/6: 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 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.

RESTful Webservices in Symfony

Avatar of Jan Schädlich Jan Schädlich

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 Application using Symfony. We will start with the basics of REST and will cover some more advanced topics like Serialization, Content-Negotiation and Security afterwards. Besides all the theory the attendees can deepen their learnings on every topic while doing the provided coding challenges.

Advanced Security with Symfony

Avatar of Andreas Hucks Andreas Hucks

The Symfony Security Component is an important tool in many web applications. Symfony 6 has seen an overhauled authenticator system providing a base both for out of the box authentication mechanisms as well as extensions points for customizations.

The workshop kicks off with an overview of the authenticator mechanism, how it works in a classic form authentication, and how to build your own authenticator to support simple JWT auth. We also touch on some point that sometimes get swept under the rug when first learning about the security layer: CSRF protection, protection from timing attacks etc.

In the second part we will talk about two factor authentication in Symfony. Topic will include the theoretical background how things like OTP in general and TOTP work, and how to practically use them in Symfony using and customizing existing libraries.

Prerequisites: You should feel comfortable around a basic generic Symfony project: How to install the framework using Flex and run it locally, how to configure routes, how controllers and templates work. Deeper knowledge of the Service Container configuration can help, but will not be mandatory.
