This event is sponsored by Kodamera which will host our meetup and provide us with food and drinks. The doors open at 17.30 and as usual we'll begin with some food and drinks before the presentations.
This meetup will feature two presentations:
"Let's steal some stuff: Enumerables" - Lars Olsson from Elicit
Using ruby's Enumberable module as an inspiration we'll build a PHP trait that will allow us to create powerful collection classes with very little effort. We'll also talk about closures and their usefulness when writing generic collection methods.
"Knowing your state machines" - Tobias Nyholm from Happyr
Web development is not just about delivering a response. It is also about writing good code. The state pattern will help you move complexity from being all over your code to one or more state machines. This talk will introduce state machines, show how to identify uses of them and implement them in your Symfony application in an object oriented manner using the Symfony Workflow component.
