Building Testable PHP Applications


Comments are closed.

It was interesting to hear that Chris is retiring this talk soon, since people like him have helped make the information widespread enough to be common knowledge. A great explanation of exactly why you should be testing, how to get started, and techniques to apply, and pitfalls to avoid to keep your code testable.

One of the things that I really wanted to get more information on in this conference was using Dependency Injection with decoupled classes and testing with something like PHPUnit. This talk was a crucial part of that. I understand the desire to retire this presentation but it was very helpful for me. I think a lot of people are starting to use unit testing now so I think something that might be helpful would be a presentation on how to convince your supervisors of the need for unit testing.
