phpMelb: Composer, Yii, Vagrant, and Generators

PHP Monthly News

Someone will talk about what's happening in the world of PHP.

Presentation: Composer by Tom Corrigan

Composer is a tool for managing dependencies in PHP projects. This talk will introduce Composer and its associated package repository Packagist. The key features and benefits of using Composer will be explored and through practical demonstrations you will gain a working knowledge of using Composer for dependency management.

Lightning Talk: In Defence of Generators by Rick Measham

We were introduced to PHP's new generators at the May meeting and, upon further reflection, I believe they're more useful than they first appeared. I'd like to make a five minute lightning defence.

Presentation: Yii by Damien Buttler

This presentation is an introduction to Yii and what makes it great, including the ease and speed at which you can build applications. During the presentation Damien will build at basic blog to give a detailed understanding of the steps required to build applications in Yii.

Lightning Talk: Vagrant by Colby Swandale

Vagrant is a tool for building complete development environments. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases development/production parity, and makes the "works on my machine" excuse a relic of the past.


After a quick pack up, we head to the nearest eating establishment for food, drinks and networking.
