SymfonyWorld 2020: meet new conference speakers!


SymfonyWorld 2020 is coming in less than 2 months, will you be there? This year we’ll celebrate Symfony’s 15th anniversary with the wonderful Symfony community from December 1st to 5th for the first ever 100% online event!

Today there is even more speakers at SymfonyWorld 2020 :

  • Denis Brumann, Software Developer, will be talking about “Serializer Demystified”. The Serializer is an essential tool when building APIs with Symfony. Knowing it in more detail can save you a lot of time when you want to customize how your data is handled. In this talk we will look at how the Symfony Serializer works by default by having a deeper look at the provided Normalizers and then we will look at some use cases for customizing both how data is serialized and deserialized.
  • Pauline Vos, Lead Engineer, will be speaking about “Get Social! Implementing Social Login in your Symfony Project”.You build a beautiful application, only to have users drop off at the registration step. It’s a challenge many of us have struggled with. Social login can lower the bar for users, and increase conversion in your on-boarding funnel. Implementing it can be very straightforward, but what happens when you need something more specific for your application? And how do you make sure the entire round-trip is tested properly? We’ll discover all the pitfalls and challenges and how to solve them in this talk.
  • Samuel Roze, VP of Engineering, core team member of Symfony, creator of ContinuousPipe, Tolerance, Symfony Messenger and more, will be talking about “Streaming: an alternative to CRUD & batch processing”. If a product or a company grows after its early stage, it’s not rare that there will be multiple systems or “services” communicating to each other. The two most common ways are by using APIs or batch processing. In this talk, I will show you another way, message streaming. This less known technique has great maintenance and decoupling properties given that you understand its ordering and idempotence requirements, which we will discuss. We will also see how partitioning allows us to scale the streams in separate segments, while maintaining the previous requirements.
  • Jérémy Derussé, Solution Architect and author of Symfony/Lock component, will be sharing his experience about “Lock & Semaphore: The gatekeepers of your resources”. Released with Symfony 3.4, the Lock component allows you to limit concurrent access to shared resources. 3 years later, its little brother, the Semaphore component completes the range of tools at our disposal. Well beyond the classic flock() or sem_acquire(), these components enable us to cover more complex use-cases such as maintaining a lock on several pages or integrating into a distributed and high availability infrastructure. In this talk, through business examples, I’ll show you how those components work. And we will see the possibilities they offer us as well as their limits.

In total,  there will be 30 speakers and to listen to their fantastic talks, to help you enhance your Symfony knowledge and experience. You’ll have the privilege to listen to the following speakers, already published on the conference schedule:

  • Ramona Schwering, Quality Assurance and Cypress Ambassador, speaking about “Symfony meets Cypress – E2E testing for symfony developers”.
  • Damien Alexandre, PHP and Elasticsearch consultant, talking about “Elasticsearch with Symfony, from development to production”.
  • Christopher Hertel, Software Architect, giving a talk about “Better Console Applications”.
  • Thomas Berends, PHP Developer, speaking about “PHP + Minecraft”.
  • Nils Adermann, co-creator of Composer, talking about “Composer 2”. He’ll be speaking with Jordi Boggiano, co-creator of Composer.
  • David Buchmann, Software Developer, Open Source Contributor & Maintainer, strongly engaged with the Symfony CMF initiative, speaking about “Decoupling an application with Symfony Messenger”.
  • Chris Holland, Director of Engineering and contributor to NomadPHP and php[architect] magazine, presenting a talk entitled “Password Hashing and You”.
