Code4Lib SIG Meeting: Spring Forum - Web Frameworks


Web frameworks [1] are a great facilitator for building web projects, allowing the coder to focus on the problem domain by outsourcing common web processing tasks to the framework, and often steering it into a standardized architecture (such as MVC).

In the code4lib SIG Spring Forum, we will be introducing the web framework, examining symfony (PHP) [2] and Sinatra (Ruby) [3]. symfony is a full-scale MVC framework, while Sinatra is a micro-framework designed for quickly creating web applications in Ruby with minimal effort.

After the presentations and Q&A, there will be time available for lightning talks - attendees will be given the chance to share their framework experiences in 5-minute sessions. We will also facilitate a discussion of Drupal (PHP) [4]. Sharing some of the characteristics of both frameworks and content management systems (CMS), Drupal has also found much use in the library world.
