PHP is probably the most popular scripting language, so we wanted to gather a group of PHP enthusiasts to share their knowledge and experience. In collaboration with the PHP Zagreb organization, we hosted a meetup.

This time our experienced Anka and Ivan had a lot to share with the crowd. Topic Anka talked about was how to sell Behat tests to your boss or clients.

She said: “Whenever I read or talk about writing tests it seems that the biggest problem is of a financial nature. How will I write unit tests, acceptance tests, functional tests, or any tests when the budget is small and the deadline is tight. Or why should we care when a client or boss doesn’t care? Behat tests seem to be the most easier to sell and I like to share that opinion with you.”

Ivan talked about “Strangler pattern basics”

He said: “When approaching legacy code, we are often faced with a complicated application that we feel would be best to rewrite completely. However, this task can be time-consuming and with a questionable outcome. Enter Strangler Pattern! Even though it is often combined with migration to microservices, I will also provide some more down-to-earth examples on how to use this pattern within your application.”


Give Kudos by sharing the post!
