Learn Autowiring in Symfony


Basic PHP coding skills.

Session details

Autowiring allows you to manage services in the container with minimal configuration and takes one step ahead to load services . It reads the type-hints on your constructor (or other methods) and automatically passes the correct services to each method. So overall it easy to use and much simpler way to load Service without injecting using Dependency Injection.


In this Session you will learn :


- What is Autowiring and Defining Services Dependencies Automatically using Autowiring.
- Type-hints and Use of Type-hints in Autowiring.
- Fixing Non-Autowireable Arguments (Manually Wiring Arguments).
- Why Autowiring is preferred method.
