PHP Symfony


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jon Peck and welcome to Up and Running with Symfony2. In this course, we'll look at Symfony, an open source PHP framework for web development. I'll start by describing what Symfony is and why it's useful, then demonstrate how to install and configure the framework. We'll direct traffic through the application, create models that persist in the database, render content with templates and explore how to create and validate forms. Finally, we'll discover ways to debug the application and work with the console tools. Throughout the course, we'll create a magazine catalog web application for managing a collection of back issues.

We'll cover all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques that a modern developer can use to quickly build PHP applications without having to constantly reinvent the wheel. Now, let's get up and running with Symfony2.
