Building Testable Applications

Domain logic is the heart and soul of software. It is responsible for representing concepts of the business domain and its rules, providing a foundation for implementing the required processes and workflows. Tangling domain logic with application logic, for instance by coupling it tightly to a framework, leads to software that is hard to test, a pain to maintain, and not flexible enough for changing requirements. These problems can be avoided by inverting the relationship between domain logic and framework. Applying the concepts and practices of domain-driven design leads to applications which are independent of frameworks, independent of any particular persistence technology, and independent of the user interface. It is precisely this independence which makes applications testable: unit tests, edge-to-edge tests and end-to-end tests can all be easily and effectively implemented when the architecture is solid and sound. This two-day training event will be held on February 16-17 2015 in Montréal, right before ConFoo. The attendees will learn how to apply domain-driven design to implement testable applications with PHP. The focus of this training will be on live coding, taking the attendee's questions and feedback into account. Your trainers Sebastian Bergmann, Arne Blankerts, and Stefan Priebsch are world-renowned PHP professionals with combined and complementary expertise in the areas of strategic planning, architecture, quality assurance, systems infrastructure and IT security. Covered training topics include: Domain-Driven Design, Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS), Event Sourcing, Unit Testing, Test-Driven Development, Experiment-Driven Development.
