Build powerfull and smart web applications with Symfony2

Symfony2 first stable release is scheduled for the first week of March 2011. During this session, we will have a look at the new framework architecture and most of its powerfull features.

We will show you how Symfony2 implements the MVC pattern and an HTTP request is processed and converted as a response for the end user. Of course, we will talk about the configuration principles and how it's easy to configure Symfony2 project parts like the routing system or the data model. We will also focus on other major components of the framework like the Doctrine2 integration, forms, security (authentication and authorizations) or HTTP cache management.
