Hello my name is “if”

It’s an inescapable fact that writing maintainable code is not easy. Before we can change any code, we have to understand what the code currently does, and whether it’s supposed to do that.

We’ll have to go over this again later on…

In addition to the many large and long-standing legacy code applications, there are more and more brand-new products. New extensions and modules offer new possibilities and thus opportunities for customers and companies. However, there is one major problem that continues to produce legacy code: the developer. In this article I will highlight various aspects of software development and encourage good software quality and work.

New routers needed in the country

The dominance of the PHP framework silos is coming to an end. Thanks to the increasing popularity of the Composer, PHP developers are finding it easier and easier to build their own framework from many different building blocks and packages. This article provides an overview of some PHP routers that are available as useful alternatives.

Tutorial: How to extract microservices from a PHP monolith

Here it stands, the monolith that has grown for decades, and is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain and expand. An undifferentiated rewrite would be too expensive and no guarantee that it would be better this time. In order to tame the monolith, we can refactor it on a large scale, i. e. maintain its behaviour but improve its structure. This can be done, for example, by extracting microservices - and preferably in small steps.

Testing PHP code more efficiently

Quality code is highly valued in the PHP community. You’ll rarely find untested libraries on GitHub. Two problems that developers encounter again and again during testing are the handling of file operations, as well as testing built-in PHP functions such as time() or exec() on certain expectations. In this article, Tommy Mühle explains a few solutions for such cases.

How hard can it be?

Back when starting their consulting company, they deemed invoicing a solved problem: Simply write them using office software, print to PDF, done. That solution did not make them happy, though.

Continuous Integration for PHP

Continuous Integration is the first step of a Continuous Delivery Chain and can be used as a standalone solution. It reduces the team's workload in the field of quality management by automation and helps to make sure software quality is maintained in the long run.
