After days, weeks, or months of coding many developers don’t know how to gauge the quality of their code. I’ll introduce tools to grade, benchmark, and analyze PHP code in an automated fashion allowing developers to write better quality software. Then I’ll explain key metrics to help understand what may need to be refactored, and use code smells to point out bugs before end-users discover them. Attendees will see how to use these tools, know where to find them, and be able to implement them in their own workflows.

I wish novice developers (and intermediates) were made to watch this presentation on a regular basis. Lots of great info clearly presented

Fantastic talk with lots of good tools to help all PHP developers identify where they can improve their code. Clear definitions and explanations of each metric and why they're important.

Very good delivery but definitely beginners only.

Great presentation of a lot of tools, thanks for making the choices easier for us. My boss should thank you :-)

A valuable and useful talk that all develops should see. Clean code is important, and can be achieved much more simply than perhaps is often thought!

A good overview of some the key tools but also justifications that a developer can take back to their managers to form a business case.

A super talk on code quality tools. The speaker could speak a little slower.

If everyone used the tools you described, the PHP world would be a better place :-)

Great talk.

Really well presented and great talk. Showed off some great tools that will help all developers

The first half of the talk felt like it was more for beginners, with a lot of good practices which most senior devs should already be aware of (it doesn't hurt to reinforce it though). I mostly enjoyed the second half of the talk where I learned about a few tools I wasn't aware of, and learned of some capabilities of tools I knew, but didn't realize they had.

I like the way how Adam delivered excellent development tools to the audience. Writing clean, maintainable code is often a challenge to PHP developers, even to experienced developers. I'm looking forward to refreshing myself with what I have heard from the talk and improving my code better.

I thought I was a bit of an expert in this area, but you definitely taught me a few things, thank you. You are also a very engaging speaker. Really enjoyed this talk.

Really good talk if you done this before. The speaker was excellent. If you have used some of these tools then there wasn't a great deal to learn. I was hoping there would be a case study or a bit more time spent on how you would implement the tools to exact maximum value from them.

Adam is a fantastic speaker, I would have sat and listened to him talk on any topic for an hour!

Analysing and measuring code is important and Adam wasted no time in explaining why and how you can practically get started in checking your code.

Great topic, great slides & resources, great delivery. Thanks!

I liked this talk but I will admit there wasn't much new here for me. I feel like the talk might have been better focusing on less tools and talking more about how to get more value from the insights.

Great speaking ability though and easy to follow.

Great overview of all the tools we should all be using as PHP developers.
