When I chose Symfony, I did so on the understanding that it was going to be a relatively lightweight, performance framework which I could use to build web apps which scale nicely and respond quickly. I started out with a tutorial where the first activity was to get the name of a person input via […]
I’m about to make a change in my career and go back into development. To help me do that I’ve started a course on Udemy for getting up and running with Symfony 4. I figured that if I was going to be working with frameworks, I might as well get used to them.
I’m working on a project, part time, in my spare time. As part of that project I have Jenkins for continual building when I publish anything into the master branch in git. I’ve not done much for a month or so, but logged in to it today to be given a lovely warning that the […]
