Not certain you're making full use of Composer's capabilities? Overwhelmed by the number of commands, options and configuration choices? Composer has become the standard tool for Dependency Management in PHP. While we continuously work on improving Composer's usability and documentation, it covers a vast amount of functionality and use cases, and Dependency management itself remains a challenge for software development. Apart from the latest changes in Composer this session will cover details on version constraints, stabilities, semantic versioning, and the correct use of the lock file. We'll also cover helpful tips for everyday interaction with Composer, such as the right options to use during development, testing and deployment, or commands useful for debugging solver problems. You should already be familiar with Composer and be eager to learn more tips and tricks.

While the basic usage of Composer hasn't changed much in years, it just keeps getting better, and nobody but Nils (or Jordi) is better suited to provide the ultimate field guide to using Composer effectively.

Excellent use of session time. Specific recommendations from one who knows the tool as well as anyone could. The talk delivered on the session description.
