Part 2 of 2 – Sebastian Bergmann, the maintainer of the PHPUnit testing framework, came to our office in Cologne, Germany to talk with Campbell Vertesi (@CampbellVertesi) and me about PHP, PHP FIG and the PSRs, and of course testing. It is another in a series of interviews we carried out in preparation for DrupalCon Asia in Mumbai. To prepare our session, we carried out a number of conversations with important and interesting people from the PHP community and now we’re releasing those to you!
About our session: “Meet PHP-FIG: Your community just got a whole lot bigger, Drupal” is about Drupal 8’s membership in the new, interoperable PHP community. We’re covering the basics of what the PHP Framework Interoperability Group (PHP-FIG) is, what the various PSRs are and do, and talking about testing and dependency management, and what it means to be a part of the new PHP community — including having better architecture, cleaner code, and more interoperability. All of this adds up to a big move to get projects “off their islands,” saving developers a lot of code, and companies a lot of money, among other benefits.
