or September we're planning on doing another meetup with only lightning talks!

Wednesday 6th September 2017

Getting Started with Dotfiles
Talk by Dries Vints (15 minutes)

In this short talk you'll get an overview on what dotfiles are and how to start with your own. We'll take a look at a couple of solutions to make sure that your dev environment can easily be restored once lost and how to save and sync some of your app preferences.

19:45 We Have a Satis Touchdown
Talk by Robert Broen (20 minutes)

In this talk I'll show how to set up a Satis server, with a quick and dirty install on a clean virtual machine, configuring a private package from a BitBucket account and then using it.

20:15 A Practical Introduction to Snapshot Testing
Talk by Freek Van der Herten (15 minutes)

The basic idea of snapshot testing is that you compare the output of your code against a file that’s written on disk. That file is called a snapshot. If the output of your test matches up with the contents of that snapshot, it succeeds, otherwise, it fails. It’s a simple as that. In this talk we’ll demo how you can add snapshot testing methods to PHPUnit and review a practical example on how to use them.
