Talk in English - UK at PHPSW: Architecture, June 2019
Short URL: https://joind.in/talk/ec498 (QR-Code (opens in new window))
This talk takes a look at the positive impacts that automated tests can have on architecture. Unit testing in PHPUnit or PhpSpec, as well as behavioural testing using tools like Behat, have a noticeable effect on software architecture. Tested (or testable) code is often easier to work with, cleaner, and has architectural advantages. We will take a look at some of the impacts that a good test suite can have on your application’s architecture, and how to let your tests be your architect.

Great talk about testing our code. It has never been easy for me to really understand things about testing, but this talk has given me a new insight of what testing can be other than actually test the code! Well done!
Awesome talk by Sam, some great information around testing, with the pros and cons clearly defined.
In addition to the information given, I'd have like to have scene a "demo" of the code running (via a video,live coding is risky).
Good job :)
Great stage presence, and nice clear slide visuals.
I liked that you engaged the audience with polls.
There were a few moments when you mumbled a little at the end of a sentence, idk if they could hear you at the back then. Excellent elocution, though! There was a bit of waffle around the TDD and Architecture slide.
I think this would be a good talk to give as a guest lecture at a bootcamp, it's very straightforward and comprehensive, and a very important subject!
I liked that you explicitly stated you're open to questions throughout.
Testing is something I'm still not confident with, but there was alot of information I took from this talk and will need to think about in the future.
A succinct talk covering the various layers and purposes of testing and how they help to focus your code writing.
Even though I have extensively used behat in the past, it was great to hear about again cementing the importance of BDD.
Really nice talk Sam.
Clearly showed how the way we develop affects the structure of our classes, by traditional methods, with unit testing, with TDD and with BDD.
I would like a bit of a better pace maybe and be a bit clearer at the end of the sentence at times. And spice the slides a bit more, though I understand there was a time limitation.
Really important point that our app requires the details from stakeholders and business analysts to make sense, use the appropriate terminology and be to the point without excessive/unnecessary methods.
Really good job there!
good talk and presentation, bit slow tempo
