Code like a pro

Workshop abstract

No matter how experienced you are as a developer, you can always improve. This workshop will teach you advanced coding techniques through live coding. First up, you will solve some interesting coding problems you will have defined (it is only live if nobody knows the problem beforehand). In the second segment, you will write code in a test-driven fashion. With Stefan, you will touch on domain-driven design, test-driven development, clean code and SOLID principles, and might even throw in a few design patterns. Every question will be answered!

To fully participate in the workshop, you should have a good working knowledge of PHP, at least basic OOP skills, and be familiar with the basics of PHPUnit.
