DrupalCon Denver Day 2
Todays highlight so far (day isn't over yet) was Fabien's presentation "Drupal meets symfony". In a very clear presentation @fabpot explained what parts of symfony will be adopted in Drupal 8 and why. The most important ones being the classloader, httpfoundation, routing and httpkernel components. This will allow Drupal developers to focus on the CMS and let symfony take care of the low-level work. Symfony follows the HTTP 1.1 standards and allows for some amazing stuff out-of the box, like ESI support and Varnish. Using smyfony, you even have a reverse proxy caching mechanism based on php (if you can't afford Varnish).
