I already introduced RulerZ and the reasoning behind it. This time I’ll showcase its integration with Symfony and the Form Component.
I launched my first blog in 2007, when I started to attend lycée (the American equivalent would be High School I guess, something like 9th or 10th grade). While most my posts were kinda tech-oriented, the rest of them were… well let’s say that I was young and that I’ve evolved since!
A while ago I stumbled upon a - rather old but nonetheless interesting - post written by @beberlei. In his post, he highlighted the issues of having too much responsibilities in a repository and suggested a solution based on the Specification pattern.
Digest of my best practices for Symfony projects. They are given as is, in no particular order and are far from being exhaustive.
