PHP @ TEKsystems - Automated Deployment

As PHP Developers we want quicker feedback on our code. We want more thorough testing. And we want that feedback on demand.

“The 5 Secrets of Automated Testing Success” will give you insights into the 5 things you can do to make testing your php web applications with automation successful!

These 5 Secrets are the keys to the success Beaufort Fairmont’s clients have experienced over the last 2 years. As a consultant for Beaufort Fairmont software engineer and automated testing expert Paul Merrill, has partnered with companies like Thomson Reuters (a $16B publically-traded, international company) to accomplish feats about which most project teams never dream.

Over the last 12 years, his experience educating and working with teams at industry-leading companies like Microsoft, Sensus, HEB Grocery and Motricity have helped hasten software development cycles and put higher quality products in the hands of consumers.

His recent work –- implementing the “5 Secrets to Automated Testing Success” -- led to one client’s automated testing coverage eclipsing the 95% mark. It reduced defect resolution time to a matter of hours and expanded testing hours by over 1 person year… every day.

      Paul, I noticed that your website seems to be built with Drupal. Could you recommend some TDD resources for Drupal based projects? Most of my work is building Drupal websites. Thanks!

    @Allison I'm interested in learning more about your process and how you all are testing this application. The ideas I'll present next week are sure to help. Make sure to stick around afterward and talk with me about your teams' specifics. I'm happy to be a resource for all my new friends in the php meetup!

    Eager to learn about ways to streamline testing of our web-based app - right now we test 20 OS/browser combos on a system with 300K+ lines of LAMP-stack code plus a custom 4GL. Hope there are tips that can help us!
