Linux and PHP web application support and development (Bromsgrove, UK)

PHP UK Conference 2012

On Friday and Saturday, last week, the annual  London PHP conference took place.

We were there on Friday – and I saw the talks on :

  • “The Journey towards Continuous Integration” (which has prompted me to upgrade our internal Jenkins based CI infrastructure and introduce Sonar for long term statistics capture)
  • “Security Audits as an Integral part of PHP application development” (the presenter unfortunately wasn’t aware of any tools which could be easily integrated with a build environment like Jenkins, so the only approach seems to still be manual review or penetration testing on deliverables).
  • “Profiling PHP Applications” (which was good, but could have been improved if the presenter had a “real” application to demo with which had performance problems).
  • “Try { getting people to come to a talk about exceptions}” – which was an interesting look on exception and error reporting within software.

The conference was (as with previous years) well attended and contained a number of useful nuggets of information which made attending worthwhile.

As with previous years, videos of all the talks should be online – so catch-up should be possible.
