From package dependency management to autoloader creation, Composer makes our jobs easier. Yes, PHP is huge taken as a whole but each PHP project is its own little island, so in many ways it makes PHP seem small to the outside world. Composer is helping to make the PHP world a bit more united, and joining/including the many PHP projects as dependencies has become easy.
In this talk Adrian will walk through using Composer from an end user point of view, and show how to use the many PHP projects/packages dependencies available from the Packagist database to build out a complete system using many other projects. Then Adrian will show how easy it is to create your own packages complete with PSR-0 autoloading.
