Introduction & Housekeeping notes (10 minutes)

Just a few words from us to describe what's coming

PHPStan Captain Hook
Talk by Roland Golla (50 minutes)

GitHooks - Effective development is what we want How about if bugs are always found directly. Before we even push it. As a pre-commit hook. It's just fun. Automated tests are super cool. They made my life so much better. I am always excited to build things that find all forms of bugs. My pipelines are characterized by very different test procedures. And then came the static code analysis. Static code analysis is so much more than just following a code standard. And PHPStan finds so much more than only errors in code. And it is so fast. It helps me to improve my work and develop myself. It shows things in my software architecture and I am obliged to work so much better and cleaner. This is just amazing. And there are many more tools that can analyze my code. And that doesn't need to happen remotely. No environment is required here. Like very good unit tests, they find bugs quickly. And what if I couldn't commit an issue anymore. And this is where Captain Hook comes in. This makes it very easy to define Git hooks, execute commands and evaluate returns. That makes my job so much better and more efficient.
