Benjamin Eberlei:
Symfony All The Things (Web)
October 27, 2014 @ 09:18:52

In his latest post Benjamin Eberlei talks about some of his reasoning to want to Symfony all the things when it comes to building web applications. Actually, it's the results of a discussion he had with a coworker about when is the right point to move from a micro-services infrastructure to a full-stack framework like Symfony.

We use microservice architectures for the bepado and PHP Profiler projects that Qafoo is working on at the monent. For the different components a mix of Symfony Framework, Silex, Symfony Components and our own Rest-Microframework (RMF) are used. This zoo of different solutions sparked a recent discussion with my colleague Manuel about when we would want to use Symfony for a web application.

He talks about some of his own reasons for making the choice including things like the HttpKernel and having a well documented and standardized solution. He notes that most of his reasons are more because of his previous exposure to the framework and could be very similar for others and other frameworks, though. He then extends on the "Hello World" code from the previous post and makes an improved minimal Symfony app with just seven basic parts (including configuration files).

Project:
Web Application Security Quiz
June 14, 2013 @ 10:54:55

If you're looking to test out your application security knowledge, you might want to give Timo's Web Application Security Quiz a try:

Web Application Security Quiz tests your knowledge on the common security principles and quirks related to web application development. There are 15 questions. A correct answer adds one point. An incorrect answer subtracts one point. If you don't know the right answer, you can skip the question (no points are added or subtracted).

It's a pretty good overview of some of the concepts you'd find in most application security policies and includes the answers if you're interested in some of the reasoning behind them.

PHPImpact Blog:
The PHP framework that fits in a tweet!
March 09, 2009 @ 11:16:43

In the spirit of making the most out of the room you have Fererico Cargnelutti has pointed out a framework in a tweet (on Twitter) with some of the new PHP 5.3 additions - Twitto.

Twitto is the smallest and fastest PHP Web framework, and the first one to use the newest features of PHP 5.3. Packed in less than 140 characters, it fits in a tweet! Despite its size, Twitto is bundled with a default controller, is E_STRICT compliant, and generates an error if you try to access a controller that does not exist.

It was developed by Fabien Potencier (of symfony framework fame) as a part of the 140 Characters Webapp Challenge
