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

“Gosh I love these tutorials. How come I never knew about them before... D: In 2 days, I'm almost at the end (only the next course is left). Be proud of yourself. And be proud of what you're doing Ryan! I'll pass on the word about these tutorials.”

“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.”
