In the last couple of years I’ve seen many different applications: Spaghetti code, framework based apps, good or bad code quality. But there’s one thing most of them have in common at a certain point in time: For different reasons it’s hard to migrate to the state-of-the-art programming methodology. And now Zend Expressive comes into play. Zend Expressive is not only a slim middle-ware framework which implements the PSR 7 standard. Thanks to it’s simple base concept Expressive is great as a quick start for your migration project and a smooth transition to the next generation of the app. See in this session best practices on how to bridge your legacy system – like a ZF 1 or Symfony 1 application – to Expressive and move it to the next level.

Excellent overview of how to gradually move to expressive from legacy applications, but need to improve font size and highlight relevant snippets upfront.

Good insights of what you can do with Expressive to migrate your legacy app over time.

Great talk about a way to modernize your legacy application without modernizing it :)
Very interesting approach to transform ZF1 or SF1 applications into "REST" APIs, this could be useful in the near future.

My first insight into Zend Expressive and I think it is Zend Impressive. It showed the benefits of the Architecture on Symfony 1 and Zend 1 projects, but there wasn't enough time to go into more details. The important steps were covered.
