Special Workshop: Getting Started with PHPUnit (Wed, 26 September 2018)
Location: To be confirmed
This is a full-day hands-on workshop. Lunch and tea break will be provided.
Instructor: Sebastian Bergmann
If you want to be sure that your software works correctly then you need to continuously test it. Automated tests save you from pressing F5 in the browser all the time as well as from using debug statements such as var_dump() in your code. They are also cheaper than manual tests and easier to implement than you may think.
The attendees of this full-day workshop will learn how to write and execute tests as well as how to integrate automated tests into their development process.

Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a modern city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. It lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator. The country's territory consists of the diamond-shaped main island, commonly referred to as Singapore Island in English and Pulau Ujong in Malay, and more than 60 significantly smaller islets. Singapore is separated from Peninsular Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to the north, and from Indonesia's Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to the south. Singapore is highly urbanised. Land reclamation has been used to expand the country's land area.
