I’ve finally made it to my first Zendcon. Its nice to see some familiar faces and also nice to put new faces to familiar names.
Much of the material is based on Test Pattern columns that I’ve written for php|architect. Here are some of the specific columns.
One thing I like about both writing on and presenting on the same material is that I get feedback from the presentations that I can put back into the writing and vise versa. I’m looking forward to finding some better ways to explain layering and the depend on abstractions principle. If you saw the talk, was there anything you particularly liked or needed work? Leave a comment here or on the joined.in page.
Here are some of the books I mentioned in the talk.
I sat in on the PHP Code Review talk this afternoon. I thought it was a great complement to my talk. I tend to be a bit theoretical and this talk was very practical, but we covered a lot of the same principles. Nice talk. Nice scheduling, Zend.
I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. Unfortunately, I have to go back to work on Wednesday.
