The nightmare is at your doorstep! You’ve been tasked with extending a legacy PHP web application, a mash of raw SQL and HTML and PHP all inside out and backwards and spread over a several dozen (or hundred!) files. You know getting the system under test will push the project forward, but where do you start?

Come learn a slow, careful approach to incorporating automated unit tests into untestable code. See how your tests can slip in unobtrusively to take over your codebase from the inside, eating away at the spaghetti and creating a solid platform for future development.


Meet Gemma Anible


Gemma is a software engineer, video gamer and recovering classical violinist who has been developing PHP web applications since before PHP5 (and applications in C, .NET and Delphi since before then). She is passionate about using pragmatic processes and tooling to support developers of all types and skillsets, and her level of excitement over learning new dev technology tends to correlate strongly with her level of caffeination. Gemma and her husband live with their two dogs in New Mexico, where they climb volcanoes for fun.
