Composer: To Infinity and Beyond!


If you know anything about Drupal 8, you'll know that there's a Symfony going on in the basement. What you might not know, is that a Composer is orchestrating all of the parts in one harmonious piece of beautiful music.

From the person who brought you a user-editable composer file and the maintainer of Composer Vendor Autoload comes a session entirely about, you guessed it, Composer.

In this season, we'll learn:

  • What Composer is.
  • How you can use Composer in any PHP project
  • The best practices when using Composer with Git
  • How Symfony uses Composer
  • Using Composer with Drupal 8
  • Using Composer with Drupal 7 and the differences between the available solutions.
  • How Drupal will (hopefully) use it in the future.

The only thing you'll need is enough wit to run commands on the command line, and a basic understanding of PHP.
