Symfony - Extending the Console component

Symfony - Extending the Console component

The goal of this session is to explain how to take benefit from the Symfony2 command line interface tool. First, I have a closer look at the most interesting commands to generate code and help you reduce your development time. Then, I will show you how to create your own commands to extend the Symfony CLI tool and automate your tedious and redundant tasks. This part of the talk will also explain how to create interactive tasks, interact with the database, generating links or send emails from the command line. Of course, there will be a focus on how to design your commands the best way to make them as much testable as possible.
