Last week, a Symfony Live event was held in Paris. For those of you that are not familiar with Symfony, Symfony is a PHP framework which provides the tools to build an application. Symfony powers numerous popular applications such as the Drupal CMS, the leading open-source CMS, and serves billions of impressions per month.
What differentiates Symfony from other software creation templates is that Symfony is a community. The Symfony community emerged as an open source project where web application was developed to fit user’s needs. This community has since evolved as international conferences are being held to discuss the latest web application developments. The most recent Symfony conference, know as “Symfony Live,” was held in Paris. This conference included talks and workshops, as well as announcements on the latest Symfony updates and tools.
Some of the major updates announced at the conference were the new mailer and HTTPClient. We are excited about both of these components, as they will bring welcomed benefits in terms of not only developer experience (DX) but also efficiency.
Other talks and updates given at the conference included:
