Meetup Talk on Unit Testing: The Why and The How

Another talk at PHP Vegas Meetup, this one covered unit testing. I tried to split about 50% on why to do unit testing and the other 50% on some pretty basic unit tests. This was a tough talk to try hitting an hour on. I know it’s a good topic for me to talk on because I have a lot I feel like I could talk about it. At the same time that also means it’s hard trying to say just the right things.

Overall I thought this talk was very well received with a few people specifically saying that they thought I did a good job and they got valuable information out of it. The worst part was I had made some minor changes from the version I had uploaded to Speakerdeck, but accidentally deleted the file. So I had to use the older version and it threw me off in a few places. However, it’s a useful reminder to have multiple copies of a presentation for when one needs it.
