  5. Consulting
  6. Yahoo
  12. Sensio Labs launches in USAJoining Sensio Labs in a partnership to launch services in USA Opening an office in San Francisco Project Consulting Best Practices Consulting / Audits Security Audits Training from open source experts symfony 1, Symfony 2, Doctrine 1, Doctrine 2, PHPUnit
  16. Symfony in the beginningReleased open source by Sensio Labs in October 2005Built from years of real world experience in developing webapplicationsBuilt to improve developer productivity by solving commonweb problems
  17. Symfony 0.xDeveloped the core philosophy Don’t reinvent the wheel Keep it simple stupid Don’t repeat yourself Invest in unit + functional testing Invest in quality documentation Favor convention over configuration
  18. Symfony 0.xDefined the core problem set / features Model - View - Controller Configuration - YAML + Multiple Environments ORM Integration - CRUD / Admin Generators Routing, Forms, Security, I18n, Caching Developer tools - logging, exceptions, debug toolbar
  19. Symfony 0.xThe start of an open source community Launch of Initial tutorials / documentation Support channels on IRC, Forum, Mailing lists Established a core team with distinct leadership from Fabien A way to contribute back on Trac - feedback, bugs, patches
  21. symfony 1.0
  24. symfony 1.0 was good enough for Yahoo! to adopt
  29. symfony 1.x
  30. The path to symfony 1.2The original symfony 2! Introduction of the event dispatcher Introduction of new sub frameworks Forms / Caching / Tasks Swiftmailer Refactored major components Configuration, Routing, I18n, Admin Generator, Plugins Added support for Doctrine ORM
  31. The path to symfony 1.2The community starts to mature Core team has dedicated release / community managers The community gives back to symfony Plugins + Patches + Documentation + Translations Case studies + Evangelism Community events Our first official meetup at SymfonyCamp
  35. symfony 1.4
  36. The path to symfony 1.4A stable + tested version of symfony Removed deprecated code (kept in 1.3 instead) Long Term SupportA healthy community supports itself Active mailing lists where users support each other Documentation - Translated into six languages Events - SymfonyLive + SymfonyDay
  37. symfony 1.4 Documentation
  38. SymfonyLive
  41. symfony 1.x is used on many web applications from large companies to small startups
  49. Symfony 2.xLearning from experience Developed from scratch for performance and flexibility PHP 5.3 - Support for namespaces and lambdasBetter Development Model A collection of independent components A framework for frameworks / full-stack frameworkBetter Community Github enables collaboration + contributions
  50. Symfony 2.xEvolved the philosophy Dependency Injection Container + Event Dispatcher Design by interface for a stable API Less Magic = Favor explicit over implicitDon’t reinvent the wheel Doctrine 2 (DBAL / ORM / ODM) Zend Framework 2 (Logger) PHPUnit 3.5.x

  52. Symfony 2.xNoSQL via Doctrine 2 MongoDB CouchDBBetter testing via PHPUnit Jenkins / phpUnderControl Integration Selenium Support Code Coverage Reporting
  53. Symfony 2.xGitHub vs SVNBetter core team management Weekly IRC Meetings Hackdays / Sprints / Meetups
  57. Symfony 2 is so good it is already used in production
