Back in January we asked followers of our Facebook page to suggest and vote for the topic of the next PHP course we create. The winning suggestion was “PHP testing for newbs” from John in Spain. So we went away and spent some time putting together an informative beginner level course, based on your feedback.
We’re pleased to announce the release of the PHP Testing Basics course by Andrew Perkins, which is also rather excitingly free! This course has been specifically designed to teach you what you need to know in order to test PHP applications and why it’s so important to do so.
As requested, this new course will start from the very basics, like the differences between regular testing, test-driven development (TDD) and behavior-driven development (BDD). It will also take a look at the different frameworks available to run your PHP websites as expected.
You will also explore the popular test methods that you can run such as unit, functional, and acceptance.
Once you’ve completed this course and you want to learn more, take a look at the PHP to Laravel Essentials bundle we’ve put together. With this you can develop your PHP skills further and follow an easy pathway to build on your foundation knowledge.
