    PHPDX - Procedural Code to Testable Code

    Graybox

    Join us for food, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    Kurtis Holsapple presents Procedural Code to Testable Code

    During this talk we'll look at how we can transform existing PHP code to cover it with a few unit tests. If you've never written a test, or want to see how we can cover a legacy code base with a brand new test suite, we'll be doing it live! We'll start with a basic contact form and build out a brand new testing setup based on PHP Unit and Composer, and when we're done we'll try to build out additional functionality all covered by unit tests.
