Wait, there are 35 Symfony Components? What Cool Stuff am I Missing?

What is Symfony *really*? It's a collection of *35* independent libraries, and
Drupal uses less than *half* of them! That means that there's a *ton* of other
good stuff that you can bring into your project to solve common problems... as
long as you know how, and what those components do!

In this talk, we'll have some fun: taking a tour of the Symfony components, how
to install them (into Drupal, or anywhere) and how to use some of my *favorite*,
lesser-known components. By the end, you'll have a better appreciation of what
Symfony *really* is, and some new tools to use immediately.
