Symfony Blog:
Making the Symfony Experience *Exceptional*
June 18, 2014 @ 12:52:34

In this new post to the Symfony blog Ryan Weaver talks about some steps the project is making to help improve the "developer experience" (DX) around using the framework. There's four things listed that they're trying out to see if they can improve the framework even more.

When Symfony was released, we (the community) thought a lot about the Symfony experience: working on documentation, improving error messages and creating open source bundles. But since then, innovation has slowed down and the Symfony experience has stopped evolving. Today, the Symfony Framework is still the highest quality PHP Framework available. But the Symfony experience has stagnated. The good news is that improving the developer experience is easy, and it involves you!

He includes the "four easy steps" that any developer using Symfony can follow to help out the development team and make things even easier (and more intuitive) to use:

  • The DX (Developer Experience) Label (on the Symfony issues list on GitHub)
  • Adding a suggested DX Label for your own repository
  • Working on DX issues at a Community Hack Day
  • Being Aggressive, Focusing on Beginners
