Training: Introduction to Symfony

Symfony is one of the most popular frameworks for modern PHP development. The Symfony components are decoupled and can be used together or on their own. Even other popular PHP frameworks and CMS's, such as Laravel and Drupal, are built on top of Symfony components.

In this training you will learn how to build web applications using Symfony and commonly used tools in the Symfony ecosystem, such as Composer, Doctrine and Twig.
