Have fun... coding with Fabien (episode 1)

A session at Symfony Live Portland 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

9:15am to 10:15am (PST)

I like to push the limits. In 1985, my first piece of code was about managing a portfolio of stocks. In 1990, I published a game written in 10 LOCs. In 2009, I tweeted an implementation of a service container in less than 140 chars. 2013... time for another challenge. What about packing a Symfony full-stack application in a single file? No phar, no compilation, everything in a single readable file: from assets to controllers, from templates to Composer configuration. This is an interesting challenge but it would come in handy in many situations like when you are reporting a bug that involves many layers and third-party code. So, is it possible to pack a Symfony full-stack application in one file? ... in less than 200 lines of code? Well, I'm not sure yet but attend my keynote at SymfonyLive Portland to see if I took up the challenge and learn a few tricks along the way about PHP and Symfony. The only thing I'm already sure about: your head is going to explode!
