Symfony Serializer: There and back again (Juciellen Cabrera)

Video not working?

It looks like your browser may not support the H264 codec. If you're using Linux, try a different browser or try installing the gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-good packages.

Thanks! This saves us from needing to use Flash or encode videos in multiple formats. And that let's us get back to making more videos :). But as always, please feel free to message us.

Talk slides

When developing APIs you sometimes need to return the same object with different representations. Furthermore, an object can be complex due to its relationships with other objects, making the serialization process such a hard task.

The Symfony Serializer Component makes it possible to manage how you want to serialize objects for JSON, XML or other formats. Also, you can manage responses using serialization groups, choosing which properties you want, handling serialization depth and much more.

Transcript & caption for the talk will be added soon.
