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
(the PHP CMF), and is even working on some Drupal modules. You can find some of his rantings at http://labs.echoditto.com
. On an unrelated note, he insists that Ninjas are better than Pirates.
