Symfony 4.2: What's new?
The new feature list for Symfony 4.2 is long. Too long to read, so Tim will give us a summary over the latest and the most interesting features and changes in 4.2.
Patterns In Doctrine
Doctrine ORM is a central component of most PHP applications and it is one of the components people love to hate. The ORM deals with lots of complexities around working with databases and interfacing with different database systems, but whenever it falls short, it can become I nightmare. In my talk I want to show what Doctrine is doing and why certain problems arise by looking under the hood at some of the patterns that it implements. By understanding these principles we will be able to better understand where bypassing the ORM might make sense, what workarounds we might have in place that could cause problems down the road and generally make Doctrine ORM less of a mystery.
