Forget about index.php and build applications around HTTP!

As developers we are asked to implement really challenging and complicated tasks, so it's easy to forget that in reality we need to solve only one problem - transform a Request into a Response. PHP and HTTP are really well suited to this task because of their statelessness, but how can we leverage it and which practises are the best?

During this talk we will take a look into Symfony2 architecture and see how its components are built around Design Patterns that solve problems and fulfil our specific needs.
