There’s a slight Smell of wet Dog in your Code
Sebastian Feldmann (Check24)

Do you know code smells? Do you think they are a bad thing? Actually they are not! Code smells help you to recognize problems in your code. And the best thing about them is, that they help you refactor your code the right way. In this talk we put our noses deep into our code and have a look at how this smells can help you improve your legacy code or even the code you write today.

Sebastian lives in Munich and Cologne leading a team of web developers at CHECK24. In more than fifteen years of PHP experience he specialized in enterprise web applications. He is passionate about automation, performance and maintainable code. Sebastian is an open source contributor and active member of the PHP user group Munich.

Functional PHP for Pragmatics
Michael Häuslmann (TNG Technology Consulting)

Functional programming has been used for more than 50 years. With the rise of languages like Clojure, JavaScript and Scala functional programming is on its way to becoming the next buzzword.

In this talk, we're looking at what all the fuzz around functional programming is all about. Instead of wasting our time with mathematical concepts, we're going to have a look at how we can incorporate some elements of functional programming into our day-to-day work. Using functional programming we'll make our code easier to understand, test and less error-prone.

Michael is an open-source enthusiast who’s in love with high-quality software development. His weapon of choice for most of his professional and private work is PHP. Often forced to work with legacy software, he believes in a rational and pragmatical approach to software development.
