Testing PHP with Perl: Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together

October 26th, 2004

This October join New York PHP and recognized author Chris Shiflett and special guest Geoff Young as they look at the interesting combination of PHP and Perl. Stop by our IBM location to see how these two languages complement each other for testing.

Testing PHP with Perl: Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together

Lots of people use PHP for Web development. Lots of people use Perl for testing. Why can't we be friends? This fun but genuine talk will show how developers can use the power of the Apache-Test framework to improve the overall quality of PHP applications using Perl's mature testing tools and methodologies.

See Chris and Geoff demonstrate valuable new techniques, combining the power of PHP and Perl. Platinum sponsor IBM has provided a great room with seating for plenty.

If you want to play with the downloaded tarball of files, just follow the steps in the INSTALL file (it even gives you an example set of steps for installing Apache with PHP, which you can probably skip). The sample application lives in t/htdocs, and the tests are all *.t files within t. Examples of tests written in PHP exist within t/response/TestFunctions.

APress, our latest sponsor, has provided a great selection of books for meeting attendees. Come prepared with a business card to enter the raffle.
