HTTP client workshop in the PHP track of Web Summer Camp Rovinj
I was invited to do a workshop at Web Summer Camp in Rovinj (yes, last year it was called PHP Summer Camp – it got bigger this year). This year, I did a workshop on building HTTP clients in PHP. I did the workshop together with Márk Sági-Kazár, the lead author of HTTPlug, the HTTP client abstraction on top of PSR-7. We used PSR-7 and HTTPlug to build a client against an example API to manage TODO items. Then we showed how to do a Symfony integration for such a client, and how the HttplugBundle can be used to debug requests that are done in Symfony. The slides are online on slides.com – though note that this was a hands-on workshop, important parts of the workshop are not visible on these slides. The workshop was well received and I hope to teach it again in the future.
Web Summer Camp is unique in being a conference that only consists of 3 hour hands-on workshops and no only talks – aside from a lightning talks session. There are workshops in the morning and in the afternoon, so during the 3 days, you get to do 6 in depth-workshops. This year, there was the PHP track with 2 parallel workshops, and an eZ publish track as well as a UX / agile track. The Summer Camp is a community organized event with a great atmosphere, nice evening activities – and keeping the prices impressively low for what you get. The included boat trip on saturday is another unique and awesome thing. In short, you should strongly consider visiting the Summer Camp next year!
