Smarty: Gettting Web Designers Out of Your Code
Dirk Elmendorf, Chief Technology Evangelist, Rackspace Managed Hosting

Track: PHP
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Salon B


PHP makes it very easy to mix code and HTML, which in the beginning of a project seems like a good idea. As the project grows, and you add more and more HTML and more and more code, you end up with a mess.

Enter Smarty.

Smarty is an incredibly powerful templating engine. It can help separate your presentation layer from your code base. If you work on a web team this tool can be a lifesaver by keeping your code and your web designer as far apart as possible.

This talk will cover:
Smarty Overview
Advanced Features of Smarty
Translating an existing project into Smarty
Building Smarty systems that are easy for your web monkey to work with.
