Don't miss this Symfony meetup with talks from Loïc Faugeron and Ciaran McNulty.
Behat is widely used as part of a Behaviour Driven Development lifecycle, but it's also widely misused. In this talk Ciaran will show the best practices including: writing good scenarios, driving service development from scenarios, and fast UI testing, using Behat and the Symfony2Extension.
Ciaran helps teams at all levels of ability improve via training and coaching. He has been a PHP professional since the late 90s and is passionate about TDD, BDD and Agile methodologies. He is lead maintainer of PhpSpec, a unit level BDD tool.
All frameworks seem to have their own micro framework: Zend framework has Expressive, Laravel has Lumen. But what does Symfony have? Silex? MicroKernelTrait? Hah! The stuff's as boring as a pacifist pistol. But don't worry, for I have a plan as cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University.
Loïc Faugeron is a lead developer at Constant Commerce, where he develops APIs using Symfony3, PHP7 and phpspec. These days he's rambling about TDD, CQRS / ES and MonoRepos on his blog
