Gonzalo Ayuso:
Talk about SOLID and Symfony at the deSymfony 2014 conference.
June 03, 2014 @ 09:23:21

Gonzalo Ayuso has posted a wrapup and the slides from his SOLID presentation at this year's deSymfony conference recently held in Barcelona, Spain.

Last saturday I attended to the deSymfony conference in Barcelona. A great opportunity to meet again with the PHP and Symfony community in Spain. This year the conference accepted my talk about SOLID and Symfony. Here you can see the slides of the talk (slides in spanish). [...] The conference was perfect. Barcelona is an incredible city and the conference place (10 minutes walking from the Sagrada Familia), was incredible too. Great talks. But the best, as always, the coffe breaks with the conversations with the Symfony and PHP community from Valencia, Zaragoza, Madrid, Barcelona, ...

His talk (in Spanish) covers some of the basics around the SOLID design principles including definitions of each piece and brief code snippets to illustrate. If you're interested in a bit more detail around the SOLID principles in PHP, check out the first four parts of a series over on for each principle: Single Responsibility, Open/Closed, Liskov Substitution & Interface Segregation and Dependency Inversion principles.

Flex and PHP Samples from Adobe MAX Europe
October 24, 2007 @ 09:48:00

Mike Potter has pointed out some examples that were shown at the Adobe MAX event in Barcelona surrounding the integration of PHP and Flex.

I gave 3 sessions on Flex and PHP. As part of the presentation I created a number of small samples that show how to use Flex and PHP together. [...] There are examples that show how to read and write data using XML, JSON and WebORB. These are not complicated examples - they are designed to be very simple and show you at a basic level how to connect Flex and PHP together.

The examples are:

  • Reading Data from PHP Using XML (REST)
  • Reading Data from PHP Using JSON
  • Reading Data from PHP Using WebORB (AMF protocol)
  • Reversing the above and sending data back to PHP
  • Creating your own PHPMyAdmin Automatically
