Testing... Testing... 1...2...3

Next months meetup (7th of October @fifthring) is going to be focusing around writing testable code and the various test suites/tools you can use to make sure you're covered when you're pushing to production! No more late nights scrambling around trying to find those elusive bugs.

Codeception (introduction to PHP testing)

To start off the session we'll have a short talk from Thomas Dutrion (@tdutrion) going over the basics of testing and giving an introduction to using Codeception for writing acceptance tests. If you're new to testing this should give you a jump start on some of the (often overwhelming) lingo.

After the talk we'll be opening things up to a group discussion; so feel free to bring along questions or suggestions to share so we can help each other out.


At this months meetup we have two (e)books to give away! Chris Hartjes (@grmpyprogrammer) is giving us a copy of both of his php testing books to raffle off at the meetup.

Guide to building testable applications in PHP
PHPUnit Cookbook

So head along to FifthRing on the 7th for a chance to grab one!
