Yesterday, thursday 26 March 2015, we finally organized another event. The previous real event was somewhat about 2 years ago. This meetup was Symfony-flavoured, as many people wanted an update about the move towards Symfony. So yesterday we gathered in the Combell-offices in Ghent, to talk about Fork and Symfony. We had one intro-talk and two "real" talks:
Update on Fork and the Symfony integration by Tijs Verkoyen
Effectively using the Symfony Components in Fork by Wouter Sioen
Having fun with the Symfony Container by Bram Van der Sype
Update on Fork and the Symfony integration
Tijs talked briefly about which components are already integrated into Fork and the future. The future will hold more meetups, more Core members, more ... So if you are interested in participating as a Core member, send us an email (info [at] fork-cms.com).
See https://joind.in/14294 for the slides.
Effectively using the Symfony Components in Fork
Wouter talked about how you can use some of the components already available in Fork in more detail. He explained Routing, DependencyInjection, Console, EventDispatcher. And last but not the least he discussed the Functional tests.
See https://joind.in/14182 for the slides.
Having fun with the Symfony Container
Bram, who works at SparkCentral, showed us some nice tricks with the Symfony Container: tagging and Compiler Passes. It showed us some features most of us didn't know about, but will be handy in the future development of Fork.

We would like to thank all the speakers: Wouter, Bram and Tijs, and Combell for sponsoring the location, drinks and food. If you would like to keep up with new announcements for events you can check our MeetUp-page.
