- Inertia - The Modern Monolith
Jonathan Reinink will be streaming in to present on Inertia. Inertia is a new approach to building classic server-driven web apps. We call it the modern monolith. Inertia allows you to create fully client-side rendered, single-page apps, without much of the complexity that comes with modern SPAs. It does this by leveraging existing server-side frameworks.

- Steve Grunwell - Testing Like You’ve Never Tested Before (Because You Haven’t)
Steve Grunwell will be giving a talk about Testing in PHP, entitled "Testing Like You’ve Never Tested Before (Because You Haven’t)". Testing software in an automated fashion is one of the best ways to guarantee quality, reduce bugs, and prevent regressions in our code, and is a prerequisite to operating in a Continuous Integration environment. Unfortunately, the most difficult parts of testing come right at the beginning: scaffolding a test suite and writing our very first tests. For those who are new to automated testing, these hurdles can prove overwhelming. This talk covers the fundamentals of testing, in a beginner-friendly way. We’ll discuss how testing makes software better, the various levels of the Automation Pyramid, how to scaffold some basic unit and integration tests, and discuss the characteristics of great tests.

- Halt and Catch Fire: Who really needs NoSQL?
This session will begin with a brief introduction to NoSQL. Relational databases have worked on past projects. Why change now? Is NoSQL just a buzzword with no real substance? What can it do that relational can’t? What about all those horror stories and memes? We’ll look at the best use cases for non-relational databases, how projects have succeeded and failed, and the tools and patterns for using NoSQL and SQL together. If scaling, flexibility, and speed are major concerns on your radar, or if you’re skeptical that the world needs anything but relational, then this session is for you. This session will look at NoSQL through the lens of the characters from the Halt and Catch Fire TV show: Do you work with a “visionary” like Joe who thinks NoSQL will solve every problem? Are you an engineer like Gordon who doesn’t want to rush into it? Are you like Cameron and just want to smash the big establishment databases? Do you know a Tom who distrusts open-source? Or are you more like Donna and want to find a sensible approach that uses the best of both worlds? Come to this session to find out if you really need NoSQL.
