While the summer is approaching there is still chance to learn a thing or two before. Tuesday the 19th of June we'll organize another PHPBenelux User Group meeting.
This time we are going east to Hengelo! We have to thank Interstroom to be our location sponsor for this evening.


Talk 1 : Building and deploying applications with Phing - Michiel Rook

Building and deploying an application can be tedious and error-prone. Using Phing's rich set of tasks, easy extension points and simple XML build files to handle the building, packaging, deploying and testing of your application can help you save time and increase quality.

During this talk you will be introduced to the workings of Phing, and how to tailor the tool to your specific situation. A number of demonstrations will help illustrate file transformation, database migration, packaging, application deployment and other real-world use cases.

Michiel Rook is a ZCE and holds a Master's degree in Computer Science, and runs a PHP/Java contracting and consulting business in the Netherlands. He's been working with PHP for over ten years and is currently the lead developer of the Phing project. In his precious spare time he enjoys music, sports and movies.

Talk 2 : Annotating with Annotations - Rafael Dohms

What exactly are annotations? How can they change the way you code and make life simpler? We will dive into the history of annotations in and out of PHP and get to know the libraries that use them today and how we can use the Doctrine Common Annotation package to implement them in our code.
