Drupal 8 Meets Symfony2

As you might know, some of the Symfony2 components will be used as the core foundation for the upcoming Drupal 8 release. In this session, I will first provide a quick overview of the Symfony2 components; then I will dive deeper into the ones that are going to be used in Drupal 8, explaining how they works and how to leverage all their features and flexibility. Besides the code, I will also talk about the benefits for the two communities and how we can learn from each others to make both Symfony and Drupal stronger in the PHP market.

Questions answered by this session: 
What are the Symfony2 Components?
Why using Symfony2 for Drupal 8 was a good decision?
How to leverage the power of the Symfony2 Components (the ones that will be used in Drupal 8)?


Of all the talks, I think I'm looking forward to this one the most.

I too look forward to this.

Doesn't Zend and other frameworks do the same/similar?

Yes, and I think they were looking at Zend as an option, but went with Symfony instead. Search drupal.org for WSCCI to read the discussions.

Means entire MVC routing system going to add in drupal-8..
