NetTuts.com: Chatting With The Grumpy PHP Programmer
Note: This article was originally published at PHPDeveloper on 10 October 2012.
NetTuts.com has posted an interview they've done with Chris Hartjes (aka "The Grumpy Programmer") about his stance on testing in PHP applications and some of his background as a developer.
Questions from Jeffery Way include:
- You recently self-published "The Grumpy Programmer's Guide to Building Testable Applications." What made you want to write this specific title?
- In your opinion, what is the single biggest advantage to testing your applications?
- Testing applications is a bit odd, in that, overall, the idea is a simple one. [...] Was there a specific article or video that suddenly made you "get" it all those years ago?
- What are your thoughts on the vitriol toward PHP lately - referring to various viral blog posts on the subject? Is it warranted?
