Continuing the critically acclaimed success of the Intro/Advanced topic split, this month will be all about Unit Tests and ORMs. However, just to keep things interesting, Jason will give an introduction to Unit Testing while Tim will try to fake his way through Doctrine2.
PHP 101: Jason will give an overview of Unit Testing, show the basics of PHP Unit, and then do a bit of group coding to write a function that passes a Unit Test. Make sure to bring your laptop, and try to get PHP Unit up and running before this meetup.
PHP & More: Tim will talk about different data related design patterns, then show real world use cases with Doctrine2. Bring your database along, and you'll both have a good time.
Important Note: Since we've gone a year with a literal php cookie as the group logo, it's only fitting that there be some cookies at this meetup.
