For those seeking for work, we will also have recruiters from Valere and Skywater on hand, who will be looking for great talent just like you!

PHP Arrays

Arrays are the foundation of PHP application processing. With over 70+ basic functions on array processing, PHP arrays are used for everything from data access to advanced analytics. In this session we will explore features of array processing and management from simple to complex structures and demystify why PHP programmers would do things to PHP arrays that most scientists would never do to a lab rat!

Developing PHP Applications That Can Be Tested

You're ready to begin developing tests for your code, but it isn't yet ready to be tested. You know it's a mess, but you've got work to do and only so much time to go back and rewrite code that's already working...sort of. You'd like to reclaim your evenings and weekends.

101 on refactoring

Refactoring code will be discussed by Adam Culp. (The practice of altering code to make it cleaner, simpler, and sometimes faster, while not sacrificing functionality.) We all hate to do it, but it is a necessary evil. So, let's discuss how to do it better. Adam will discuss: When to refactor. How to refactor. Why to refactor. How a refactor can help us write better code in the future

it's not (just) about the code !

Beyond PHP :

The majority of PHP developers are primarily concerned with developing code. However, developing Web applications entails much more than just writing PHP code. Take a step outside of the PHP cocoon and into the larger PHP ecosphere to see how modest code changes may have a significant impact on the performance of servers and networks. This session will be a real eye-opener for developers who spend more than 80% of their time developing, debugging, and testing their applications.
