My Talks

I'm a passionate speaker who feels speaking is my way of giving back to the community for all the teachings and great lessons I learnt from other people. The topics I speak on range from everyday tools, to research material or anything I can learn enough about to share with someone else. Below you can find the slide decks I have used all these years, and how well the talk was received, some may even include videos and recordings.

Composer: The Right Way

Composer has triggered a renaissance in the PHP community, it has changed the way we deal with other people’s code and it has changed the way we share our code. We are all slowly moving to using Composer, from Wordpress to Joomla and Drupal and frameworks in between. But many of us mistreat composer, follow outdated practices or simply lack a few tricks. In this session i’ll get you the low down on how to use composer the right way.

“Writing code that lasts” … or writing code you won’t hate tomorrow.

As developers we write code everyday, only to frown at it a week after that. Why do we have such a hard time with code written by others and ourselves, this raging desire to rewrite everything we see? Writing code that survives the test of time and self judgment is a matter of clarity and simplicity. Let’s talk about growing, learning and improving our code with calisthenics, readability and good design.

We might have rejected an RFC to add support into the PHP core, but the community has embraced this tool anyway! This session shows you who is doing what with annotations, and will give you some ideas on how to use the existing tools in your own projects to keep life simple.

Performance and testing are just one aspect of code, to really be successful your code needs to be readable, maintainable and generally easier to comprehend and work with. This talk draws from my own experience in applying the techniques of object calisthenics and code readability, within an existing team. It will help you identify trouble areas, learn how to refactor them and train you to write better code in future projects avoiding common pitfalls.

What exactly are annotations? How can they change the way you code and make life simpler? Annotations allow you to implement new functionality into code using "notes" this allows you to easily maintain your own architecture but benefit from external tools. Let's look at how annotations are used today in PHP and how we can develop our own solutions based on the existing libraries.
