The Inaugural Meeting

  • Jun 24, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

So it’s a week until our first Symfony MeetUp with the Digital Poets Society and we can’t wait. We’ve got some delicious food and drink lined up to keep us nourished we’re looking forward to meeting you all!

There will be three awesome presentations lined up for 24 June.

First up is Matt Agar, Director of Technical Services at August. He’ll be speaking about Symfony Components and in particular the Event Dispatcher. His presentation will focus on how it can be used outside the full stack framework. 

Next, we have David Gilbert, Hosting Manager, who will be presenting on load testing, specifically around web applications. There may also be a few points on TCP stacks and Linux kernels but the bulk of it will be centred on load testing your app.

Our third speaker is Zuhair Naqvi, Technical Director at Como Group who is talking about Doctrine Entities on steroids - using Custom Annotations. A fringe benefit of the data-mapper pattern Doctrine 2.x works on is the ease of mapping your domain model not just with the persistence layer but with external contexts such as 3rd party APIs and application services. This means your Entities can define not just how data is stored but where it comes from and what it means. 

In this talk you'll learn how the Doctrine Metadata Drivers can be used to create your own reusable annotations using the example of a UserProfile entity integrated with Facebook Graph API and perhaps a local service.

If you can’t make it along, we’d really appreciate if you could let us know so that we can offer the place to someone else.

Alternatively, if you know someone who would be interested, feel free to bring them along and let us know you’ll be a plus 1, or 2  :)
