Test-driven development with PHPUnit

Trainer: Oliver Klee

Test-driven development (TDD) is a programming strategy where you first write some automated tests and then use those to drive the design and implementation of your code. This leads to cleaner and leaner code and (as a side-effect) to an extremely high test coverage, which all help improve the quality of your code.

In this workshop, you will learn and practice TDD and get to know the relevant testing patterns. After the workshop, you will be fluent enough in TDD to use it in your own projects.

Automated testing for TYPO3 extensions with PHPUnit

Trainer: Oliver Klee

You have written a TYPO3 extension, and it works quite well. Now your customer asks about whether you are doing "unit testing", and they have heard that this will greatly improve the quality and reliability of code. A workshop to the rescue!

In this workshop, you will learn how to write and run unit and functional tests for your extensions, and which parts of the code should be tested which way.

Automating the code quality of your extensions

Trainer: Oliver Klee

Style checking, type checking, linting, unit tests, functional tests, CI, GitHub Actions … oh my. You want all the automated help you can get for keeping your extension stable and maintainable, but there are so many tools and options. Where should you start? Where can you look for best-practice examples to steal/copy from?

You can either bring your own extension or work on our example extension during the workshop.
