We are pleased to announce the August event for PHP North East, Symfony Components & Friends by Michael Peacock.
The event will take place at the Post Office in Pink Lane (@PostOfficeNE1) courtesy of PNE. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Laura Sharpe of Sharpe Recruitment, there will once again be a stack of pizzas for you to enjoy before the talk. The event is free and open to all, but please sign up online so that we have an idea of numbers for the venue, and how much Laura needs to cough up for the pizzas. Feedback, suggestions and ideas for future topics are welcome on our Google Group.
Please promote this event via Twitter or your own website to help us spread the word.

Symfony Components & Friends by @michaelpeacock
The symfony components and their friends (twig, pimple and silex) provide excellent reusable solutions to common web-related problems, from application routing to dependency injection to template rendering. In this talk we will walk through some of the core components and their friends and see how easy they are to use within our own projects. The components work well both in new projects and in existing projects via extending funtionality or as a basis for refactoring.
