One year ViennaPHP

by Sebastian Göttschkes

It's been a year since the ViennaPHP usergroup registered on Meetup. Let's talk about the way we've come and what's ahead

Codeception, because tests can have frameworks too! by Luka Muzinic

In tutorials, writing tests is easy and test driven development is piece a cake. In reality, we are usually dealing with bloated applications, legacy code and hand-me-down projects. Codeception makes testing easier and something you want to start doing, no matter what horrible spaghetti code you have in a background. Also, it simplifies writing tests to the point where it is not only developers, but easily your managers, bosses, sales or even clients job. See for yourself what Codeception currently has to offer, what are future development plans and discover some real project experiences with using it.

Web application: Tech from startup to enterprise by Miro Svrtan

Mid 2009, was a 2 year old project gaining a lot of traction in local market. In 4,5 years we grew from 23 mil to 340mil PWs, almost at a rate of 100% every year. While we are aware that this traffic is zero to nothing in comparison to some of the world mega sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google) we are a small team (2-4 developers), concentrated on building a product for our local market.Talk would cover how we scaled our platform:
- bare metal enterprise grade servers hosted in our data center (no cloud due to latency issues)- scaling resources while in rapid development (business doesn’t wait for technical problems to be solved) - implementing new technologies- implementing methodologies (technical & organizational)
While a lot of projects, when entering their enterprise phase start to produce less and less features, in 2013 we have built more features then ever before. With same number of developers, focusing on developers knowledge and understanding of business demands (and few other tricks).
