WASHINGTON, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fig Leaf Software, a leading training firm for web designers and web developers, announces a strategic partnership with SensioLabs, creator of Symfony, to deliver hands-on, instructor-led training to students in the United States and Canada. Symfony is a PHP application framework and the standard foundation on which the best PHP applications are built. Symfony contains 30 stand-alone components designed to help developers speed the creation and maintenance of their web applications. The new classes include:
- Web Development with Symfony 3: A four-day class dedicated to helping master all the fundamental concepts and advanced tools in Symfony 3
- Web Dev with Symfony Components for Drupal: A three-day class for PHP developers using Drupal 8 who want to improve their knowledge in object-oriented web development and desire to use Symfony core components.
The first Web Development with Symfony 3 class will be delivered jointly by SensioLabs trainers at Fig Leaf's DC training center on October 25th – 28th.
"Our partnership with SensioLabs will allow Fig Leaf to deliver Symfony training to the thousands of Drupal developers in North America", states Dave Gallerizzo USMCR (Ret.), CEO of Fig Leaf Software. "Fig Leaf has trained more than 35,000 students since 1998 and we expect Symfony training to be a key element in helping Drupal 8 developers get the training they need to be successful with their web projects."
SensioLabs, creator of Symfony, Twig and Silex, has been masterminding intelligent solutions and support not only for their free software products, but also for their most recent code checking tools, SensioLabsInsight and Blackfire.io, designed to manage quality and performance over the entire lifecycle of an application. After more than a decade in Europe, SensioLabs recently opened offices in the United States to support the successful development and deployment of PHP projects utilizing Symfony. The partnership with Fig Leaf, focusing on training North American developers, will prove mutually beneficial to both companies in their efforts to respond efficiently and completely to training demands.
"We are seeing tremendous growth in the use of Symfony for web apps and sites in the US and Canada and as a result, web developers are looking to improve their skills and competency with Symfony. As our first North American training partner, Fig Leaf will play a critical role delivering Symfony training since they combine our proven courses and curriculum with their facilities and trainers to deliver training now. In addition, their strong ties to the Drupal community enable them to deliver the necessary training to help Drupal developers transition to Drupal 8." Scott Dahlgren, Managing Director, SensioLabs US.
