If you've only ever experienced web development through a web framework, you're missing out. Have you ever been tempted to rewrite a codebase in your favorite framework? That's a smell that you need to come to this session. Being comfortable developing without a framework is a crucial skill to have for refactoring legacy applications. In this session you'll see how to harness the power of going "frameworkless" so you'll feel empowered to make better decisions in your next web project. Be set free from your web-framework ball and chain.

One of my favorite talks so far. The teacher was very organized and engaging, had excellent slides, and pointed us to some great resources. I went in rather skeptical of the premise of the talk but came out convinced of its merits. The speaker said repeatedly that he wanted us to feel empowered and I certainly do, particularly with regard to modernizing legacy apps with new components from Packagist/Composer.

Sammy's a great speaker! He presented a very use case oriented way to look at building your applications. The hidden gem of this talk is that it showed a way to learn about how frameworks that you're less familiar with solve similar problems.

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful slide deck.

Great talk and left me inspired to start a framework-free project.

Very engaging speaker. Great presentation. And, of course, the material presented was practical and useful. I appreciated the repeated insistence that the audience form their own opinions because they, too, were smart people.
