The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has posted their latest episode - an interview with Bulat Shakirzyanov.

Cal's "three questions" for Bulat revolve around his work with unit testing:

  • How do you counter the arguments that unit testing takes too much time or their boss/client won't give them the time to learn or practice testing?
  • Do you advocate 100% unit test coverage - if so, why (and if no, why not)?
  • Why is it important for developers to mock native PHP commands in their unit tests?
