Announcing a new Meetup for The Baltimore PHP User Group!

What: The Symfony Framework and Doctrine ORM with Travis Black

When: Wednesday, May 19,[masked]:30 PM

7070 Samuel Morse Dr
Columbia, MD 21046

Hot off the heels of Tim Crider's Zend Framwork talk, we're going to take a look at another popular open source PHP framework, Symfony! Symfony is a full-stack framework, a library of cohesive classes written in PHP. Thousands of developers already trust symfony for their applications! Travis Black will be giving the talk on Symfony.

Travis Black is a software developer currently employed by echoditto inc. He has been developing web applications in PHP since 2004. After experiencing MVC for the first time in Ruby on Rails, he spent a good deal of time trying to find a good PHP alternative, which lead him down a path of righteousness. In the end, he found Symfony, fell in love, things will never be the same for him again. Besides Symfony, Travis has contributed to the Doctrine ORM, Sympal(the PHP CMF), and is even working on some Drupal modules. You can find some of his rantings at On an unrelated note, he insists that Ninjas are better than Pirates.

Travis's Talk:

  • Why a framework?
  • Why MVC and how Symfony does implement it?
  • Symfony Components (Libraries that make up Symfony)
  • Demo: Implementing a blog in Symfony
  • Questions and Answers

We are meeting in our normal location, at our normal time, just a different Wednesday than normal. Pizza and soda are provided by OmniTI (Thank you!). Come hungry with your PHP hats on. Bring a friend that's interested in PHP. The more the merrier.

To stick with our after meeting thirst quenching, we?ll be heading out for a few drinks after the presentation. Our after meeting spot of choice is PubDog in Columbia. I hope to see everyone there!
