Modernizing Drupal with Symfony2

A session at Symfony Live Portland 2013

Thursday 23rd May, 2013

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

Symfony is not just a full stack framework, it's a collection of powerful decoupled web app components. Those components can be used on their own or even leveraged to modernize an existing codebase. That path is not always simple, however. Drupal 8, due out late in 2013, is being radically rearchitected around the Symfony Components. That has far-reaching implications for the rest of the system, including transitioning from an almost entirely procedural system to a mostly OO system. This talk will be a hands-on "lessons learned" in injecting the Symfony components and architecture into an existing system. We'll cover Drupal's existing architecture, how we reached the decision to leverage Symfony, how we're going about leveraging Symfony without leveraging anti-acids, and where we're likely to end up when the dust settles.
