PHP 7, PHPUnit 5, and Beyond

Every eight weeks a new version of PHPUnit that adds new functionality is released. These releases do not break backwards compatibility, making it easy for developers to update. The October 2015 release, PHPUnit 5.0, however, needs to break backwards compatibility to prepare PHPUnit for PHP 7. We will discuss how PHPUnit had to be adapted for PHP 7, how PHPUnit benefits from PHP 7, what additional changes PHPUnit 5 brings with, and we'll close with a look ahead to PHPUnit 6.

Sebastian is a co-founder of and a pioneer in the field of quality assurance in PHP projects. His test framework PHPUnit is a de-facto standard. He is actively involved in the development of PHP and responsible for creating a wide range of tried-and-trusted development tools.

Real World Orchestration with Ansible: tips and tricks for PHP environments

There was a time when infrastructure automation tools were out of reach for developers - either expensive or ridiculously complex, such tools often required an extra amount of time and dedication that only specialized sysadmins could cope with. Luckily for us, these times are gone. Tools like Ansible - the radically simple orchestration platform - came to empower individual developers to build automated infrastructures of any size, managing from one to hundreds of servers with a single provisioning setup.

This talk will walk you through practical examples of infrastructure orchestration with Ansible, featuring tips and tricks for automating the provisioning of PHP environments, from development to production.
