Executing PHP from the command line enables us to interact with our applications in new and interesting ways: from performing site maintenance to scaffolding new projects, CLI tools like WP-CLI, Artisan, and Drush make it easy to interface with our code without ever opening a browser. Attendees will be introduced to popular PHP CLI tools and their default capabilities. We'll discuss characteristics of good CLI scripts, strong use-cases for writing custom commands, then write several CLI programs across different platforms.

Very fast discussion of CLI interfaces. great for developers that have never used the cmd line.

Excellent overview for writing command line scripts useful for different contexts. I would have preferred seeing the code example earlier but that may just be a personal preference.

Lots of references and shout-outs for frameworks, like the breadth of the talk.

Great overview of basic PHP development for the command line

Great PHP CLI overview. Good scope and pace.

For anyone writing migration (or any long-lived) scripts, this was a great primer. Very useful explanations and light introduction to some libs that help.
