Advanced PHP Development

Arne BlankertsSebastian BergmannStefan Priebsch | ConFoo |

Join us for this highly interactive and entertaining two-day training event. Experience three industry-leading PHP consultants demonstrating iterative software development using state-of-the-art tools and methods. Every development step will be explained in-depth while an application is developed live in front of the audience. A fictitious company is used to tell the story of a startup that struggles with the usual problems such as scalability and security in a market where you have to be agile in order to adapt to changing requirements rapidly. Over the course of two days, three development sprints (or iterations) of software development will be performed. Each sprint will showcase problems from a different phase of the application's lifecycle. At the end of each sprint we will deploy working software into production and look back at what we did in an agile retrospective. The topics covered include: application architecture, API design, OOP, test automation, security, and deployment. Instead of textbook examples, real-life problems and solution are discussed. Take advantage of this uniquely intense form of knowledge transfer at an unbeatable cost-to-benefit ratio.
