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

“Thanks to weaverryan for the amazing Symfony4 series on KnpUniversity. Clever, fun, engaging, and the clearest Symfony4 info I've seen yet. Bravo!”
--Vic Metcalfe

“Thank you for this series of tutorials. This has done wonders for my understanding of OO PHP. Truly helpful!”
--Jeremy Carlson

“You have really inspired me to start using and practicing BDD with my applications (PHP and beyond), and to promote others to do the same as well. It definitely lit some fires under some of the dev's feet.”
