If you live in Ireland and you have a passion for PHP, pay attention now. Next week I’ll be visiting both Dublin and Belfast for a full workshop on Quality Assurance for PHP projects.

What can you expect from these workshops? I will give you the basics to get started improving quality for your PHP projects, showing you how to set up and get started with some examples you can download afterwards. With the slides and the source code of the examples used during the workshop you should be able to get started improving quality assurance with your own applications very easily.

If you come, bring your laptop as I will ask you to participate and do some exercises as well!

What we’ll cover during these sessions:

  • Syntax Checking
  • Automated API documentation based on docblocks in your code
  • Unit, integration and stress testing
  • User Interface and workflow testing
  • Measuring health of your codebase
  • Automation
  • Continuous Integration

I want to thank the folks at Engine Yard and PHPDublin for sponsoring this workshop in Dublin and Simply Zesty for sponsoring the session in Belfast. There are still seats available in Dublin, so if you want to attend, hurry up and claim your seat.
