Serializer Demystified

Serializer Demystified

The Serializer is an essential tool when building APIs with Symfony. Knowing it in more detail can save you a lot of time when you want to customize how your data is handled. In this talk we will look at how the Symfony Serializer works by default by having a deeper look at the provided Normalizers and then we will look at some use cases for customizing both how data is serialized and deserialized.
