Developing a new web application should not mean reinventing the wheel. Thats why a framework is an essential item in your development toolbox. It helps you respect coding standards; write bulletproof, maintainable code; and focus on business rules rather than waste time on repetitive tasks. This book introduces you to symfony, the leading framework for PHP developers, showing you how to wield its many features to develop web applications faster and more efficiently, even if you only know a bit of PHP. In The Definitive Guide to symfony, you will learn about the Model-View-Controller architecture and the crucial role it plays in making frameworks like symfony possible. The book also covers framework installation and configuration, and shows you how to build pages, deal with templates, manage requests and sessions, and communicate with databases and servers. You will see how symfony can make your life easier by effectively managing form data, enhancing the user experience with Ajax, internationalizing applications for a global audience, and using smart URLs. Authors François Zaninotto and Fabien Potencier put a strong emphasis on the tools that symfony provides for professional environments, showing you how to take advantage of unit tests, scaffolding, plug-ins, the command line, and extensible configuration. And since frameworks often raise performance-related debate, this book will give you many tips and techniques for monitoring and improving your applications performance, from caching to expert configuration tweaks. Always keen to offer practical instruction, the authors include lots of code examples, expert tips, best practices, and illustrations throughout this book, with the goal of providing a resource that satisfies the educational needs of symfony's rapidly growing user community.

With the surge of popularity of PHP 5, object-oriented programming is now an important consideration for PHP developers. This version-neutral book is a gentle introduction to object-oriented programming (OOP) that won't overburden you with complex theory. It teaches you the essential basics of OOP that you'll need to know before moving onto a more advanced level, and includes a series of prepackaged scripts that you can incorporate into your existing sites with the minimum of effort. It shows how object-oriented programming can be used to create reusable and portable code by walking you through a series of simple projects. The projects feature the sorts of things developers run up against every day, and include a validator for filtering user input, a simple Date class that avoids the need to remember all the esoteric format codes in PHP, and an XML generator. Teaches the fundamentals of OOP Simple projects show how OOP concepts work in the real world Prepackaged scripts can easily be added to your own projects

Using a full-stack framework like symfony is one of the easiest ways to increase your speed and efficiency as a web developer. The framework comes bundled with many useful features that help you concentrate on your application's business logic rather than on the implementation on yet another object pager or yet another database abstraction layer. However, this also comes at a cost; learning all the available features and all the built-in configuration possibilities does not happen overnight. The Practical Symfony book, released at the end of 2008, is a great way for a beginner to learn symfony, understand how it works, and also see best web development practices in action. When you begin working on your own projects, you need a reference guide. A book where you can easily find answers to your questions at your fingertips. The Symfony Reference Guide book aims to provide such a guide. It acts as a complementary book to Practical symfony. This is a book you will keep with you whenever you develop with symfony. This book is the fastest way to find every available configuration thanks to a very detailed table of contents, an index of terms, cross-references inside the chapters, tables, and much more. Despite being the lead developer of symfony, I still use this book from time to time to look for a particular configuration setting, or just browse the book to re-discover some great tips. I hope you will enjoy using it on a day to day basis as much as I do.

As of this writing, the symfony project has celebrated a significant milestone: its fourth birthday. In just four years, the symfony framework has grown to become one of the most popular PHP frameworks in the world, powering sites such as Delicious, Yahoo Bookmarks and Daily Motion. But, with the recent release of symfony 1.4 (November 2009), we are about to end a cycle. This book is the perfect way to finish the cycle and as such, you are about to read the last book on the symfony 1 branch that will be published by the symfony project team. The next book will most likely center around Symfony 2.0, to be released late 2010. We have already published two books on symfony 1.3 and 1.4 recently: "Practical symfony" and "The symfony reference guide." The former is a great way to start learning symfony as you learn the basics of the framework through the development of a real project in a step-by-step tutorial. The latter is a reference book that holds most any symfony-related configuration information that you may need during your day-to-day development. "More with symfony" is a book about more advanced symfony topics. This is not the first book you should read about symfony, but is one that will be helpful for people who have already developed several small projects with the framework. If you've ever wanted to know how symfony works under the hood or if you'd like to extend the framework in various ways to make it work for your specific needs, this book is for you. In this way, "More with symfony" is all about taking your symfony skills to the next level. As this book is a collection of tutorials about various topics, feel free to read the chapters in any order, based on what you are trying to accomplish with the framework. This book is special because this is a book written by the community for the community. Dozens of people have contributed to this book: from the authors, to the translators, to the proof-readers, a large collection of effort has been put forth towards this book. This book has been published simultaneously in no less than five languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese). This would not have been possible without the benevolent work of our translation teams. This book has been made possible thanks to the Open-Source spirit and it is released under an Open-Source license. This fact alone changes everything. It means that nobody has been paid to work on this book: all contributors worked hard to deliver it because they were willing to do so. Each wanted to share their knowledge, give something back to the community, help spread the word about symfony and, of course, have some fun and become famous. This book has been written by ten authors who use symfony on a day-to-day basis as developers or project managers. They have a deep knowledge of the framework and have tried to share their knowledge and experience in these chapters.
