Upgrading & What's New in Symfony 5!


What you'll be learning

Symfony 5 is here! Newer & shinier... of course! But exactly what is new?

Symfony 5 builds on top of the shoulders of Symfony 4. It doesn't completely change any directory structures or add any ground-breaking new way of developing. But it does come with some key new features to make life easier. Let's upgrade... then try some of those out. We'll cover:

  • composer.json & extra.symfony.require
  • Upgrading to Symfony 4.4
  • New Flex commands for updating recipes
  • Updating all the most important recipes
  • Finding & Removing deprecations
  • Upgrading to Symfony 5
  • New secrets management
  • Auto-validation
  • The new PHP 7.4 "preload" file
  • Using "migrate_from" to migrate your hashed passwords for max security
  • bin/console lint:container

And these are just my favorite features (see Symfony.com 4.4/5.0 Features Blog for even more). Let's get to work!

    Hey Alberto,

    This course is still on the planning stage, but we're working hard on it right now! Most probably we will start releasing it at the end of this year, or in the early January. Thank you for your patience and interest in our new screencasts!
