- Montreal 2012
With all PHP topics, nothing counts more than their practical application.
This is why thePHP.cc once again offers a highly interactive and practical
training right before ConFoo. Based on their own specific needs and
questions, the attendees decide on the topics that are covered. They
experience the development of new code at first hand, following their own
agendas rather than those of the three trainers.
With a twinkle in their eyes and a dash of fun, Sebastian Bergmann, Arne
Blankerts, and Stefan Priebsch explain development methods and tools,
present trends and concepts, and perform joint code review sessions. This
is efficient learning in a relaxed environment.
Topics covered include development best practices, 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
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.
Take advantage of this uniquely intense form of knowledge transfer at an
unbeatable cost-to-benefit ratio!
