Jeremy Coates

For my day job, I am Managing Director of Magma Digital Ltd, a 22 strong team focussing on delivering business critical software development, using PHP, to enterprise. I am also the driving force behind the UK's PHPNW conference, user group and brand, I started the group in 2008 and have, with assistance from many others, helped the group to be able to deliver six years of high quality conferences, now with 400+ delegates. The passion for this comes from my personal drive to improve skills in those around me.

Tutorial Day

Testing with Codeception

PM - Friday 3rd October

We've probably all heard by now about Unit Testing, we may even have integrated Test Driven Development into our working practice. Less commonly known though are Functional and Integration Testing practices. Until now, at least in the PHP world, these have been quite hard to achieve. In this talk Jeremy Coates (@phpcodemonkey) will introduce these concepts and a tool chain to enable easy adoption.
