(Online) Testing code performance with PHPBench

This month we have Dan Leech from Inviqa joining us to give a talk on testing code performance with PHPBench.

PHPBench is a tool analogous to PHPUnit but for performance. In this talk, you will learn how to create benchmarks for your code and, with the upcoming 1.0 release, how to protect your code from performance regressions.

We still have space for a short or lightning talk this month. If you'd like to volunteer and speak, please get in touch.

(Online) Laravel Rapid and Troubleshooting Docker

This month we have talks from Ismael, and Michael Pritchard.

Laravel Rapid: A Minimum Viable Website in under 5 minutes with a single command.

The biggest barrier to building a personal website and starting blogging is the initial friction. It takes a while to learn your way around, configure, set up and style a CMS, Jamstack platform or your own website and database. It's often enough for other priorities to win. I created Laravel Rapid to remove this friction.

(Online) Laravel APIs and rst2pdf

Happy New Year, everyone!

This month we have two talks from our organisers, Steve McDougall and Oliver Davies.

Steve will be speaking about building APIs with Laravel.

Oliver will be giving a lightning talk on using rst2pdf to create slide decks (and potentially anything else too).

(Online) GitHub Actions for PHP

This month we have Ryan Chandler joining us to give a talk on GitHub Actions for PHP Applications, covering the basics of getting a pipeline set up with a MySQL database, static analysis, code formatting & linting, testing, etc. We've had various discussions in Slack about GitHub Actions so I hope that this will be interesting and useful for people.

Ryan is also preparing and recording a course on GitHub Actions, which you can find at https://actions-for-php.com.
