Essential Complexity is Essential

The two greatest foes of every software developer are a) uncertainty and b) complexity. Over the years, we have invented many tools and methods to fight them. But eventually, we realized that uncertainty cannot be defeated and instead we learned to embrace it with ever shorter feedback cycles, "agile" methods, continuous integration, devops and Test-Driven Development.

That’s the whole meaning of dependency injection – actually, a pretty simple concept. But let's have a deeper look.

The Container Revolution: It’s not about the box, it’s about the standard.

The PHP community has come a long way: from the early days of a templating engine for “dynamic websites”, through the adventurous years of a hacky scripting language until now. In the past ten years, we started discussing design patterns and good architecture and in general created more robust, versatile and complex applications. And with the complexity came a row of new tools and techniques, which were necessary to harness all the parts which make a sophisticated PHP application. But have we also become more professional on the infrastructural side?
