Pragmatic Test Driven Development

Learn how to use PHPUnit and Test Driven Development in the most efficient way possible with practical and real world examples for extraordinary results. After this training you will be more comfortable writing tests, you will have a deeper understanding of the benefits, and you will be more comfortable coding and refactoring.

Developers still hesitate to include writing tests in their everyday routine. There are numerous excuses, myths and misconceptions around: "they slow us down", "we'll never achieve 100% code coverage, so why bother", "it takes too much time to learn testing", and "we're better off writing business logic instead". When we get to the topic of writing tests to start a project, the debate becomes even more heated.

In the real world, where you get paid by code that ships, developers strive to write the most efficient tests possible. They need to cover mission critical code and to quickly decide whether writing a functional test or series of unit tests is the best approach. Let us learn together how to use PHPUnit and Test Driven Development in the most efficient way possible for extraordinary results.

This workshop is for developers who start their projects by drawing a model of the database first, developers who are overwhelmed by the number of testing tools or don't know where to start, and developers who simply want to level up their game.


Participants should be comfortable with:

  • object oriented PHP
  • using CLI (terminal)

Participants will need to bring a laptop with PHP 7 and their favourite IDE/text editor ready to go.
