PHP Quebec Recap06 Apr 2006
PHP Quebec was an educational and entertaining conference as expected. The PHP Quebec User Group does a great job organizing the conference each year.
My talk, Agile PHP Testing, was very well received. I think KISS might be the missing ingredient that we need to ignite a testing revolution in the PHP community. Most people who approached me after the talk appreciated the simplicity of using test-more.php with no testing framework at all. I think they also appreciated knowing that using TAP allows them to "upgrade" later.
Although the slides are much less valuable without commentary, a PDF is available:
