Standing on the shoulders of giants, Silex is a micro framework built on top of Symfony2 components. It provides an ideal environment for throwing together a simple, single file application. We'll look at a real example of installing and setting up Silex and creating our first application with full dependency injection, templating and all the other features that you would expect of a modern day PHP framework. This session is recommended for anyone looking to break into the Symfony ecosystem with a simple introduction to a small framework build upon the core components of it's bigger brother (Symfony2).
