Testing FLOW3 and Phoenix

Author Karsten Dambekalns
Track Coding
Session type Talk (45 minutes)
Long Abstract With the complexity of frameworks like FLOW3 and applications like TYPO3 Phoenix development will grind to a halt sooner rather than later without sufficient test coverage.

This talk will show how we do unit and functional testing of PHP and JavaScript code. And because writing tests without running them does not help, we'll talk about Continuous Integration as well.

Working at multiple agencies Rens as seen how development can be done in a structured or completely unstructered ways. This slowly moved attention from only development to continues integration, testing and code quality. Now Rens helps integrating development environments enabling / learning developers to work with clean code, and (automatically) giving the developer feedback he needs to improve his skills even more.
