Workshop: Improving QA on PHP development projects

  • Nov 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Fathom Creative

Everyone talks about raising the bar on quality of code, but it's always hard to start implementing it when you have no clue where to start. With this talk I'm shooing that there are many levels developers can improve themselves by using the right tools. In this talk we'll go over each tool with examples how to use them against your codebase. A must attend talk for every developer that wants to scale up their quality.

Most PHP developers deploy code that does what the customer requested but they don't have a clue about the quality of the product they deliver. Without this knowledge, maintenance can be a hell and very expensive.

In this workshop we cover unit testing, code measuring, performance testing, debugging and profiling and give tips and tricks how to continue after this workshop.

Our speaker:

Michelangelo van Dam is a professional PHP consultant and Zend Framework expert working mainly for governments and larger enterprises. Michelangelo is also president of PHPBenelux, a PHP user group operating in Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg, and speaks at several PHP conferences around the world.

    Great talk last night, working on my first Unit Tests now. Michelangelo, can you post the link to the presentation and books you recommended?

      Awesome! Maybe you want to share these experiences with the user group by speaking about it at one of the next meetups.

    I now have a meeting north of Baltimore at 4. I might still be able to pull it off, but I would count me out.

    Note this date is a holiday (3-day weekend) for federal folks, if that affects your RSVP.

      It's in the evening on the last day of this long weekend. In my experience this normally has no negative effect on registrations, but I'm European so I cannot guarantee this will also be the case in DC.

      Does the furlough/shutdown/whatev­er make it "just another day"? (Slightly snarky, but also curious, since I'm not in contact w/ fed employees any more.)

  • Sean P.

    I *really* hope to be able to attend. my schedule is currently open, but the travel up to DC for meetups gets expensive. So I'm not RSVPing yet, since there's no "maybe" option.

    Looking forward meeting you guys
