At #phpsw this week, former Gradwell-er and all-round good guy Ade Slade delivered a great talk about DbUnit. Testing in general, and doing testing the right way in particular, is one of his great passions as a developer, and he certainly brought a lot of enthusiasm and hands-on experience to an often-neglected part of unit testing one’s code.

The talk and slides are on Ade’s blog.

The first meeting of the PHP SouthWest User Group will be at The Third Floor, Bush House, Bristol from 7pm. The room is booked (big thanks to Del for that), and we have a projector sorted too; now we just need our first speakers 🙂

What Is Planned

As this is the very first meeting, our agenda is still being pulled together, but I’m hoping that Bitterman will treat us all to a rehearsal of his upcoming talk for the PHPNW10 conference in Manchester in early October. I’m looking for backup speakers just in case, and of course for anyone who wants to speak at next month’s meetup.

We’ll be at The Third Floor until 8pm, after which we’ll move into one of the local pubs (probably the Watershed) for the social half of the meet-up.
