Middleware architectures in PHP with Zend Expressive

Workshop abstract

Middleware has recently become a must-know concept for PHP developers. With the advent of PSR-7, which standardized HTTP messages, many frameworks embraced and fostered the spread of such an approach making it easier for developers to create performant, composable, and customizable software architectures.

In this workshop, you will incrementally develop a RESTful API using Zend Expressive, exploring its components and its workflow. You will discover how the framework allows to easily create simple and well organized code, exploiting open source libraries and middleware layers which could be reused for other projects, even with other frameworks!
