Overview for php

Behat, Mink and Docker

I've been porting across one of the live demos I do (that's a Symfony project to demonstrate BDD & Behat stuff) from the built-in PHP web-server and a locally-hosted MySQL Database to a Docker configuration. I had some struggles with getting my Web UI Behat suite to work correctly inside the PHP container, here's what should be done.

BDD & Behat: Avoiding implementation in features

Less than 24 hours until Hack24!

With less than 24 hours until Hack24, I've been grabbing the stuff I need (well, probably don't need...) so I have everything sorted and can leave early in the morning.

Before the Hack24 Hackathon

In just under 2 weeks I'll be spending a weekend hacking at code. Meeting other developers and creative minds while the PHP East Midlands team will take on challenges set by sponsors - how will we do? What will we do?

Hiawatha & New Relic

New Relic is a fantastic monitoring tool. Hiawatha is a fantastic web server. Let's get them playing together shall we?

Using Bolt

I've moved the site to Bolt as a CMS - so I can start writing some posts about things that interest me - who wants to write yet another blog system, right?
