Speaking at MySQL Conference 2008

MySQL Conference & Expo 2008 I will present a session on Testing PHP/MySQL Applications with PHPUnit/DbUnit at the MySQL Conference & Expo 2008 that is held April 14-17 2008 in Santa Clara, CA, US.

Testing PHP/MySQL Applications with PHPUnit/DbUnit In the last decade, PHP has developed from a niche language for adding dynamic functionality to small websites to a powerful tool making strong inroads into large-scale Web systems. Critical business logic like this needs to work correctly. But how do you ensure that it does? You test it, of course. To make code testing viable, good tool support is needed. This is where PHPUnit comes into play. It is a member of the xUnit family of testing frameworks and provides both a framework that makes the writing of tests easy as well as the functionality to easily run the tests and analyse their results. This session introduces the audience to PHPUnit’s DbUnit extension that makes the writing of tests that interact with databases more convenient and easier.
I am looking forward to attending this conference, catching up with the recent improvements to MySQL, and meeting with my friends from the MySQL community.
