Silex: An implementation detail

A session at Symfony Live Portland 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

1:00pm to 2:00pm (PST)

Your framework is holding you hostage, and you are suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Are you a PHP developer, a Symfony developer or a Drupal developer? You should be a web developer. Frameworks are just details, your business does not care about them. Silex is a library with a narrow and well defined scope, that allows you to adapt it to work on top of your existing application and business logic, not within it. Most “full stack” frameworks make a lot of decisions for you, and changing them is usually quite hard. You should be telling your framework what to do, not the other way round. We will show you some approaches to designing your application in a framework-agnostic way, followed by how you can ease the delivery of your application over the web with Silex and some custom event listeners and middlewares.
