About the Book

This weekend project is about exploring modern PHP and the ecosystem of PHP packages and libraries. Over the course of this weekend you will learn some of the fundamental concepts used in building modern PHP apps.

“a weekend, the fundamental unit of coding self-improvement”- Peter Shirley

Projects such as Drupal, phpBB, Laravel, eZ Publish, Joomla!, Magento, Piwik, and many more are using Symfony Components as a foundation on which to build. We will use these, and more, to build our own PHP Framework.
