Shifting gears with Composer

If you are fed up with messages like "Class not found" or "Failed to include file" when installing an external library it´s time to give Composer a go.

Composer is a dependency package manager. It not only helps you installing external libraries but resolving dependencies. If this isn´t still enough, you also get an autoloader for free, and all of this in less than a couple of minutes.

During the talk we´ll see how to install composer, how to install the Symfony Components using this tool and how to let others install your libraries.

Welcome to PHP´s Belle Epoque!

Talk will be given by Javier Lopez.

    I'm really sorry. I've missed the train and I couldn't be in London in time!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
