Learn what the big deal is about PHP micro frameworks by taking a tour through an application written in Slim PHP. I'll briefly introduce you to some high level concepts, show how those concepts can be implemented in Slim, and see how powerful and elegant micro framework can be.


Jeremy Kendall has been dabbling in PHP since 2001 and has been developing professionally since 2007. Jeremy spent the first few year of his professional career working with large frameworks, but has since moved in the micro-framework direction, with special attention payed to Slim and dependency management with Composer. Beyond the simple pleasures of daily web development, Jeremy has developed a passion for testing, a love for best practices, and the desire to share that knowledge with others. Toward that end he was the founder of the Memphis PHP user group and organized that group for two years. Jeremy has since moved to Nashville, TN and is getting involved in the PHP community there.
