There's a lot to worry about when maintaining an open source php package, things like unit testing, version control, dependency management, code style, and licensing can be difficult to get straight and keep up to date. Luckily we have tools like composer, git, github, CI and groups like the PHP-FIG that make managing all of these things is a much simpler task than it has ever been.

Managing your dependencies manually is a huge pain. If you look at most programming languages today you will find that they all have some standard tool for managing dependencies and distributing code.

In this webinar you will learn the basics of using composer. We will learn what composer is and what it will do for your projects.

Tune into the concretePHP user group webinar to learn about:

  • What composer is and what it is used for
  • Distributing code
  • Loading in dependencies
  • Autoloading namespaces
  • Composer versioning

Who should attend?

Developers from anywhere, the composer talk will not be cms specific.

Almost every development and deployment team can benefit from a strong dependency management. Whether hosting, developing, or planning an a project we will arm with all the information you need to get the most out of Composer.
