Hi, I'm Ryan! And I am pumped that you're here! In case we're not already friends, I'm a developer with 10+ years under my belt (phew!). I keep pretty busy as the lead for the Symfony Documentation, a speaker at *countless* conferences across almost ten countries and a core Symfony team member. I've also trained teams at fast-growing startups, universities and some of the largest companies in the world. Oh, and back in the day, I even co-published a book!

Basically, I love to teach - and I've mastered a recipe for tech learning that works and isn't the same boring formula of long, dull videos! That's why I created SymfonyCasts (originally named KnpUniversity): watch videos to learn from a pro and then code online with challenges to master concepts. It's like an in-person training wherever and whenever you need it.

Testimonials

“Fantastic. A well thought-out screencast. A decent level of detail, without been overwhelming.”
--Chris Simpson

“Thanks for this great screencast! A very good refresh of all the basics spiced with the revealment of some Symfony2 'secrets'. Can't wait to watch the sequels with more advanced topics!”
--Phillip Rieber

“Excellent tutorials!! They're helping me A LOT with Symfony for my own project (a courier delivery tracking app). I've been using PHP for years (mostly backend programming) but haven't ever had the time to really dig into Symfony. Your tutorials (and Symfony of course) are going to let me kick this project out in record time.”
