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.
