Symfony is a powerful PHP framework that would let you create not only websites but great web applications, APIs or mobile backends.

It’s latest version is the most powerful, yet simplest to use for developers. If you want to learn Symfony in-depth, this is the best place you could get.

With over 13+ hours of content, without unnecessary talking, you’ll learn and discover all the concepts of everyday programmer working with Symfony framework. 

We’ll go through each single task step by step, you will code along with me. I’d explain every detail of how things work, and how things should be done. 

At the end of this course you will not only complete a fully working, real world Twitter like application, you will also deploy it to the production server. But that’s not it, we will also create an automation server, so a single Git commit will automatically release your application.

The recommended development environment is Vagrant and a ready Vagrant box Laravel Homestead, so you’ll get up and running in no time. The course includes set up instructions for Ubuntu, MacOS and Windows. Of course you can use anything that works best for you, let it be XAMPP, MAMP, Docker, Vagrant or your own system, provided you have PHP 7+ and MySQL installed.

The course starts with introduction and setup lectures and and overview of how Symfony project structure looks like.

Then we’ll move on and explain Service Container, as this is a crucial part of the framework. Don’t worry if it’s tough to understand and first, we will get back to it all the times, explaining how it works and seeing what you can do with it throughout the course.

Next section is centered around Controllers, Routes and Twig templating engine. You will learn how to create a backbone of your application and how to render HTML together with data using Twig. We will also see how we can install and manage assets, like CSS & JavaScript, by installing Bootstrap using yarn.

After that, will touch databases and the excellent Doctrine ORM. You will learn how you can create simple PHP objects as a representation of a table rows. You will learn about database migrations – an easy way of managing your database schema changes. This section will also show you how to quickly fetch, modify and delete data from the database.

Who this course is for:

  • PHP developers that do not know any framework
  • Developers with some knowledge of other PHP frameworks
  • Developers that need and want to pick-up Symfony fast with straight to the point course

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
