Short Descriptions of Presentations – PHP Conference Brazil 2008
Christopher Jones, from Oracle, asked me to put a brief description of lectures in English on the blog. Below follows a summary of both presentations. See the original post here.
Presentation 1 – Coding Standards and Refactoring with PHP
In this presentation held in PHP Conference Brazil 2008, I showed it is possible to develop PHP code with quality, focusing on best practices standards and refactoring techniques of code. For this, equivalent tools which have existed for some time in technologies like Java and .NET can be also used for PHP. These tools are:
PHP Tool Java Equivalent
PHP Code Sniffer CheckStyle
PHPUnit PMD/CPD PMD/CPD
PHPUnit Code Coverage Cobertura
IDE Eclipse PDT IDE Eclipse
Apache ANT Apache ANT
In addition to the techniques demonstrated, I discussed values and practices of Agile Software Methodologies, with a focus on Lean, SCRUM and XP. It’s been very interesting to see the public receptivity for Agile Methodologies and PHP.
Presentation 2 – Applying Patterns of Enterprise Architecture with PHP
PHP is a language known for developing programs more focused on the WEB. People are used to hearing about in PHP for development of WEB sites. Soon development of enterprise applications using PHP comes. In this presentation, I gave concepts of Software Architectures, Design Patterns, SOA, Web Services and Enterprise Applications. In addition to these concepts, I also showed the types of Enterprise Patterns used in most applications (also involving other technologies like Java and .NET). After this introduction, the content was directed to patterns of architecture and enterprise applications addressed by Martin Fowler. In the end, I showed a case study of a corporate application developed in PHP, using a set of patterns of architecture.
