  • 8:05-9:00 - talk(s):

    • Nils Adermann - Composer: Project Dependency Management for PHP
      Composer is a new PHP dependency manager. Finally using 3rd party
      libraries in PHP projects is as easy it should be. Composer was inspired
      by concepts from Node.js npm, Ruby's Bundler and other package
      management systems. In this session you will learn how Composer can help
      you with your next project and how to can make your libraries available
      for others, be it open source or closed company code which is used in
      multiple projects.

If you are interested in giving a talk, or want to request one, please look at our talks page:

    My main PHP focus is via Drupal, so want to know if/how Composer can help with that...

      As Drupal comes with its own "add-on modules" repository I'm not sure how useful it will be if you're working with just drupal. There are however some extensions registered in Packagist for it, so maybe.

      The real power of composer comes when maintaining an application that is dependent on a number libraries. Say you ran something with a component(s) from:

      ZF v2, Doctrine ORM, Common, DBAL, ODM, +more

      Then you realise the Doctrine CLI tool requires a component from Symfony. Composer would recursively grab any other dependencies that component needs automatically, so your not left tearing your hair out. It will even get the right version for you :)

      Composer may become the dependency manager for Drupal 8:­
