For some scenarios, Varnish is the silver bullet to fix performance issues and go from slow site to lightning fast site. More often though, you will need to put some effort into your application to get good results. Ideally, you design your application to play well with caching from the outset. If you don’t know what you are doing, Varnish can also be the bullet to shoot yourself in the foot. Varnish is a server component that runs independent from your web server, making it useful whether your application is written in PHP,

Die Bundles bieten Grundfunktionen wie editierbare Menüs, URLs und Inhalte. Ich zeige wie man mit dem CMF loslegt und praktische Features nutzt wie das transparente Handling von mehrsprachigen Inhalten.

With the Varnish caching proxy, you can make slow websites blazingly fast. The basics are quite simple once you understand how the cache handling in HTTP works. For starters, we will look into HTTP and the Varnish configuration. The main course is going to be cache invalidation and the cache tagging strategy. For dessert, there will be an introduction to edge side includes (ESI) - all liberally sprinkled with examples from the FOSHttpCache library and some ideas from the FOSHttpCacheBundle for Symfony2.

The Content Management Framework (CMF) is a set of building blocks for content management. You can use just parts of it to add some content management to your Symfony2 project, or use the whole stack to build customized CMS applications for specific needs.

In this workshop, we do a hands-on tour through the CMF. We look at the existing functionality and implement simple features to get a feel for how things work.

Open PHP stack trace links in PhpStorm

Inspired by a tweet from Wouter, i wanted to configure my setup to open stacktrace links directly in PhpStorm. Turned out there was more involved than i thought at first. Documentation is sparse and confusing, so i want to record the steps i needed here. Basically you need to configure xdebug.file_link_format and make your system handle a new protocol. Its less complicated than it sounds:

Configure XDebug

Just configure the xdebug extension in your php.ini to set
xdebug.file_link_format = pstorm://%f:%l

Symfony Community Awards

During the SymfonyCon in Warsaw, Poland, there was also the first Symfony award ceremony. I was deemed worthy to get the community award for the "Best Bundle of the year". It is a great thing to hear that other people appreciate what you do, so this makes me really happy.

Whats more, the Symfony Content Management Framework also got an award for being the best Symfony Open-Source application of 2013.

Congratulations to all the award winners! And thanks to all the others who do great efforts on Symfony that did not get an award this time - keep it going!
