In this new post to the Ibuildings blog Stefan Koopmanschap talks about the Dutch PHP TestFest and how it all turned out.
This dutch event, which was sponsored by Ibuildings, was part of the global PHP TestFest initiative, which aims to get a higher test coverage for the PHP language and with that stabilize the language even more - something that will benefit all users of PHP. Back in May, we already deemed our event a big success with 10 attendees, a great presentation by Sebastian Bergmann and a huge number of tests written. But it turns out to be an even bigger success.
Out of the 158 tests written up by the group 39 of them were accepted and are included in the testing suite. As a result, one of the members of the team (Felix de Vliegher) was also given commit rights to the full CVS repository for PHP.
