Sal Ferrarello on Getting Started with Composer

In this video, web developers can learn how to get their hands dirty with the PHP dependency manager, Composer.

The Video Screening Room

If you’re a WordPress developer, Sal Ferrarello (@salcode) of Reading, PA, explains how to install Composer, use it with a plugin or a theme and use it with a WordPress project. This video is from his WordCamp Philly 2015 talk.

According to Sal, “Composer does a ton. It’s a very strong and valuable tool.” Please note — WordCamp Philly 2016 is scheduled for Dec 2-4, 2016, and an admission ticket is a very affordable $40. Please help spread the word. Philadelphia is quite accessible to Washington DC, Baltimore, Delaware, New Jersey and even New York City and parts of Connecticut.

For the past 10 years, Phil has been working at a public library in the Washington D.C.-area, helping youth and adults use the 28 public Linux stations the library offers seven days a week. He also writes for MAKE magazine, and TechSoup Libraries. Suggest videos by contacting Phil on Twitter or at
