Chatting With The Grumpy PHP Programmer
Oct 10, 2012 @ 08:25:59

NetTuts.com has posted an interview they've done with Chris Hartjes (aka "The Grumpy Programmer") about his stance on testing in PHP applications and some of his background as a developer.

Questions from Jeffery Way include:

  • You recently self-published “The Grumpy Programmer’s Guide to Building Testable Applications.” What made you want to write this specific title?
  • In your opinion, what is the single biggest advantage to testing your applications?
  • Testing applications is a bit odd, in that, overall, the idea is a simple one. [...] Was there a specific article or video that suddenly made you “get” it all those years ago?
  • What are your thoughts on the vitriol toward PHP lately - referring to various viral blog posts on the subject? Is it warranted?

You can find out more about Chris' book here or follow him on Twitter or his blog.
