Session type Tutorial (240 minutes)
Long Abstract FLOW3 is a web application platform which uses Domain-Driven Design as its major underlying concept. This approach makes FLOW3 easy to learn and at the same time clean and flexible for complex projects. It features namespaces, has an emphasis on clean, object-oriented code and provides a seamless Doctrine 2 integration.

FLOW3 incorporates Dependency Injection in a way which lets you truly enjoy creating a stable and easy-to-test application architecture (no configuration necessary). Being the only Aspect-Oriented Programming capable PHP framework, FLOW3 allows you to cleanly separate cross-cutting concerns like security from your main application logic. With its 1.1 release, several new features have been introduced, including a comprehensive internationalization support and a standards compliant HTTP foundation.

This tutorial takes you through an imaginary project from scratch. During the journey we’ll visit all important areas of the framework.
