SeaPHP Oct Meetup - Composer

Beau Simensen will be talking to us about Composer.

Does your project rely on third-party code? Does your company share code between multiple projects? If so, you have dealt with dependencies. Traditionally, there have been many ways to manage dependencies for PHP projects: PEAR, copying and pasting, ZIP archives, Subversion exports, git submodules, or complicated build scripts. Composer, a dependency manager for PHP, aims to make the whole process more streamlined. Learn how Composer can be used to manage third-party packages, how to create and distribute your own Composer packages, and how Composer can change the way you think about code reuse.

Beau Simensen (@beausimensenhas been working with PHP since 2002. Professionally, he offers consulting services through his company Dragonfly Development. Beau is a proponent of writing framework agnostic code and hopes to help projects embrace a life not completely tied to any framework's ecosystem. (Some of Beau's projects: SculpinStack PHPdflydev-markdown.)


Brandon Lamb will also be presenting about Redis and how you can use Redis as a Messaging/Queueing platform.

    I am looking forward to meeting folks who share my interest in PHP. If there are any here on Whidbey Island, I haven't found them yet, and strangely my wife does not seem interested in talking about it! I am really just a beginner, so I am sure I will learn a lot...
