We're a London community of Symfony developers committed to take PHP to the next level. Join us to deepen your Symfony knowledge, share your experience, or most importantly - meet other developers using the framework! Most of our meetups consist of a "formal part" where someone gives a previously prepared talk, followed by less formal and more social discussions.
Symfony Nano Framework
Talk by Loic Faugeron (35 minutes)
All frameworks seem to have their own micro framework: Zend framework has Expressive, Laravel has Lumen. But what does Symfony have? Silex? MicroKernelTrait? Hah! The stuff's as boring as a pacifist pistol. But don't worry, for I have a plan as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University.

Talk by Ciaran McNulty (50 minutes)
Behat is widely used as part of a Behaviour Driven Development lifecycle, but it's also widely misused. In this talk Ciaran will show the best practices including: writing good scenarios, driving service development from scenarios, and fast UI testing, using Behat and the Symfony2Extension.
