Sheffield PHP - Intro to Laravel and the Laravel Ecosystem

Rob’s talk is going to be split into two halves. For the first half he is planning on running through the basics of Laravel and his thoughts on the Laravel Ecosystem. Then, after a short break, Rob will live build a quick todo app to demonstrate how easily developers can get their ideas off of the ground.

After the event you’re welcome to stay in the venue for a couple more drinks and a mingle with fellow attendees.

'Driving Design with Behat Test Automation'

Couch - Campo lane


Sam Burns

Behat is a great test automation tool, but its true benefit to developers comes when the tests are written first. Behat can support the requirements gathering and BDD process, provides a natural framework for modelling by example, and can guide the software architecture and design process. Discussing how to build the right thing right with Behat, we will look at how to write a good scenario, and how to use service-level testing in Behat to drive good domain design.
