"Architecting PHP applications for testability" by Maxwell Vandervelde

A technical overview on how to architect your PHP code with test-ability in mind.
Let's talk about MVC, class structure, separation of concerns, how it all interacts with unit tests, and how to identify problems!

Maxwell thinks this would be a good follow-up to the October meetup, which talked about unit testing.

    Can someone research/locate/build a random select tool that we can use to pick winners to give away the books I keep promising?
    Just need to be able to type in the ~25 names from sign-in sheet & click a "go" button to select a winner.

    Hi All,

    I just joined this group and would like to be there for this. I have a timing conflict so can't arrive until close to 8:00 PM. Will that be an issue?

      Jeff, not a problem. We're pretty informal and welcoming :)
