Enterprise API with :: Faraz Ali

State Machines :: Dave Clark

Dave Clark is Engineering Lead for Publishing at Finder ( and and a co-organiser of SydPHP.

"During the talk on State Machines, I will share information on what a State Machine is, why they are used and how you can build functionality which relies on them to support business processes and workflows.

Within the session, I'll point out existing open source libraries, walk through some code examples and and provide insights on how to leverage them in your own applications."

-- Lightning Talks --

End-to-end tests with CypressJS :: Guillaume Renoult

"In this lighting talk, we will talk about how to test your application with CypressJS. Although CypressJS is a JS tool, your PHP application has a frontend that the end user will interact with."
