Enough suffering, fix your architecture!
Talk by lcobucci (1 hour)

You aim for a simple change to deliver a feature, but the outcome is chaotic: coupled code, unrelated things breaking, one tiny change results on a humongous changeset. Aren't you tired of this and think that software development should be simple and make people happy? Do not despair we're here to help you! In this talk, we take a look at software anatomy, laugh at some mistakes we constantly make, and see a proof of concept using modern PHP tools. Then you will finally be able to break this cycle and find your way out of this madness.
