Hi, I'm Ryan! And I am pumped that you're here! In case we're not already friends, I'm a developer with 10+ years under my belt (phew!). I keep pretty busy as the lead for the Symfony Documentation, a speaker at *countless* conferences across almost ten countries and a core Symfony team member. I've also trained teams at fast-growing startups, universities and some of the largest companies in the world. Oh, and back in the day, I even co-published a book!

Basically, I love to teach - and I've mastered a recipe for tech learning that works and isn't the same boring formula of long, dull videos! That's why I created KnpUniversity: watch videos to learn from a pro and then code online with challenges to master concepts. It's like an in-person training wherever and whenever you need it.


“Thanks to weaverryan for the amazing Symfony4 series on KnpUniversity. Clever, fun, engaging, and the clearest Symfony4 info I've seen yet. Bravo!”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the awesome tutorials! It's been really helpful so far to learn the jargons of Symfony 3. Not only that, but it has also helped me with general programming concepts. Of course, it doesn't end here. There is always the step where I have to apply what I have learnt and learn more stuff. These tutorials have been a really great start not only for me but for everyone willing to wet their feet with Symfony 3.”
