19:30 Uhr (07:30pm) - Testing with Codeception: Full-stack PHP testing framework (Main talk)

Language: German

Codeception is a PHP testing framework for Behavior Driven Development, which covers all kinds of tests: unit tests, functional tests and acceptance tests. It is fast and simple in both usage and execution. This talk will give you a introduction to the software testing basics using codeception. It will also cover some stumbling blocks when writing tests, like:

- Test code stability against small changes
- Data stability
- Test structure

Last but not least I will give you a short outlook how to make your tests also understandable for product owners.

20:30 Uhr (08:30pm) - Static Code Analysis in PHP (Main talk)

Language: German/English

The type system and static code analysis can help us find bugs in our code in a early phase without writing explicit tests.
I'll show you the requirements for your code to get the most of static analysis as well as the tools to get you started.
