SitePoint PHP Blog:
Grumpy Programmer's Testing Bundle Review
February 09, 2015 @ 13:18:22

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted a book review of a book bundle from the "Grumpy Programmer" (aka Chris Hartjes) with content about testing - how to test, what to test and creating testable applications.

After having gotten some constructive feedback regarding my testing practices on the basic TDD in your new PHP package tutorial, I decided to read Chris Hartjes "Grumpy Testing Bundle", a set of two books consisting of The Grumpy Programmer's Guide To Building Testable PHP Applications and The Grumpy Programmer's PHPUnit Cookbook. It was my hope that those books will prevent me from using the shoddy practices I displayed in that original post and which originally prompted Matthew Weier O'Phinney's critique. In this post, I'd like to share with you what I've learned, and how much this helped me, if at all.

He breaks down the bundle and talks about each of the two books separately, pointing out places he thought were most useful and others where he felt it needed updates/more clarification. He includes examples of some of the code shared in the books as illustrations and what kind of overall rating he gives it (in elePHPants naturally).

Engine Yard:
A Conversation About Testing in PHP
May 23, 2013 @ 09:42:29

On the Engine Yard blog today they've posted a conversation about testing between Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes (also the hosts of the DevHell podcast).

Our friends Ed Finkler and Chris Hartjes recently had a chat about testing in PHP. Read on to get the low down on different testing tools and their relative merits-check it out as Ed and Chris weep for the future, come to some interesting conclusions and get their hands dirty so you don't have to.

They talk some about the current tools for unit testing in PHP applications and show what a sample test looks like. Ed talks about how the current testing tools can make it intimidating for people to get started testing and mentions the built-in testing library in Python that is a bit easier. There's also some mention of acceptance/functional testing and the Behat + Mink combo.
