Better Tests with PHPUnit

Sebastian Bergmann | The Online PHP Conference |

A new version of PHPUnit with new features is released every two months. New functionality, as well as improvements to existing functionality, are always motivated by real-world problems. How can tests be written more clearly? How can tests be run better? How can information from running tests be presented so that it is easier to understand? These and other questions guide PHPUnit's development.

You will learn about new functionality that was recently added to PHPUnit as well as the motivation behind it and how you can leverage it in your projects in this session by PHPUnit's creator.
