Stefan Priebsch: The Five Rules of PHP Craftsmanship
PHP gives developers a great deal of freedom to achieve their goals. In larger-scale projects, PHP also provides you with a lot of rope to hang yourself with, and short cycles of rapid development can quickly turn into years of maintenance nightmare. We will discuss five rules that every PHP developer and aspiring craftsman should know and stick to.
Sebastian Bergmann: 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 it, and we’ll close with a look ahead to PHPUnit 6.
