This is a past event. Please join us for Web Summer Camp this year.

Deep dive into Symfony 4 internals

Workshop abstract

Symfony is a request and response framework. But what about all that magic that happens around your code? How does security work? Why is autowiring not slowing things down? And how is it that Symfony components can be so decoupled but still play so well together?

Tobias will show you the Symfony internals. This workshop will go over the architecture of Symfony. You will follow the request and the response paths throw the framework and do some stops at the components that are more awesome than others.

This workshop is perfect for anyone who has been working with Symfony or Laravel before. Even if you have never touched a framework before, do not worry – you will still learn a lot.
