Testing with PHPUnit and Selenium

PHP, Tutorial
Location: D135 Level: Intermediate

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.

PHPUnit is an open source framework for test-driven development in any PHP-based code that automates unit testing and reduces the effort required to frequently test code while developing it. Held by the tool’s creator, attendees of this tutorial will receive insight and sage advice not found anywhere else. They will learn how to test both the backend and frontend of their web applications with PHPUnit and Selenium.
