Web applications need to be changed and adapted frequently and quickly. Their environment, for example the size and the behaviour of the user base, is constantly changing. What was sufficient yesterday, can be insufficient today. How easy is it to adapt your code to changing requirements? Is the code hard to read and understand? Do you often experience quality problems after deploying a new release?
If any of these questions made you blush with embarrassment, it's high time that you attend the PHP Days Montreal. This training is held by thePHP.cc, an established PHP consultancy founded by three leading German PHP experts, Sebastian Bergmann, Arne Blankerts, and Stefan Priebsch. thePHP.cc provides cutting-edge PHP consulting training, beyond textbooks, slides, and foo/bar examples. Instead, the trainers pull up an editor and explain best practices as they code a sample application live.
Topics covered include development best practices, tools you should use, object-oriented programming, design patterns, web application architecture, security, software quality and testing. All three trainers will be present at all times, so attendees have an unparalleled level of access to top-notch PHP expertise.
This training gives answers to every question you ever had about PHP and software development with PHP. Attendees should bring their own code and as many questions as they have.Course Outline
