Laravel News:
Review: Refactoring to Collections
Feb 16, 2017 @ 10:45:33

The Laravel News site has posted a book review by Diaa Fares of Adam Wathan's "Refactoring to Collections" book.

“Never write another loop again.” A strong promo sentence used by Adam Wathan to market his Refactoring to Collections book, but does it hold the promise? Well, together we will explore how close that claim is to reality.

If you are a Laravel developer, chances are you’ve heard about the collection pipeline before. While I use it a little in my projects I hadn’t realized the possibilities of this approach until I read Refactoring to Collections. It brought me to another level of thinking about utilizing the power and capabilities of functional programming.

The review goes on to talk about imperative versus declarative programming (with examples) and how the book walks you through "the journey" to move to a collections-driven code structure. The review also points out the amount of concepts to learn in the book and the style/effort that was clearly put into its creation. It also points to this RFC as hope for the native use of "arrow functions" in PHP in the future.

Laravel News:
Review of Test-Driven Laravel
Dec 02, 2016 @ 10:44:56

The Laravel News site has posted a review of "Test Driven Laravel", a course from Adam Wathan walking you through the creation of a Laravel-based application from a completely Test-Driven Development approach.

I’ve been programming for close to a decade, and I’m constantly trying to find ways so to improve my skill set to be able to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of technology. The one area I’ve always wanted to improve in has been testing. [...] When Adam announced at Laracon that he was creating a course on building real-world applications with TDD, I was really excited to see where it would go.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been lucky enough to preview the course as the lessons get finished. It’s been really helpful because I’ve been working on a large, complex application, and I’ve been able to apply the things I’m learning immediately in my day-to-day work.

The review goes on to talk about some of the things they've learned already from the course including test coverage for parts of the app that work with 3rd party services. They link to this talk from Adam as an example of some of the concepts taught in the course and, of course, a link where you can purchase your own Early Access pass and start learning.

PHP Roundtable:
033: Design Patternmania
Oct 27, 2015 @ 09:39:26

The PHP Roundtable podcast has posted their latest episode today, Episode #33 - Design Patternmania. This episode features guests Adam Wathan, Anthony Ferrara and Ross Tuck discussing design patterns with host Sammy Kaye Powers.

With a new design pattern coming out every week it can be easy to get caught up in all the hype. If you frequently try to implement the latest-and-greatest design pattern and feel constantly paralyzed by the thought, "I know I'm doing this wrong," this episode is for you.

We discuss how "not seeing the forest for the trees" might be a good thing as we try to narrow our focus in order to write better code without thinking of patterns first.

You can catch this latest episode either through the in-page video player or directly on YouTube. If you enjoy the show, be sure to subscribe to their feed and follow them on Twitter to get information about the latest shows as they're released (and when future live recordings are happening).

Three Devs & A Maybe:
Episode 68 - Podcasting, Remote Working and Testing with Adam Wathan
Jun 17, 2015 @ 08:53:09

The Three Devs & A Maybe podcast has released their latest episode today, Episode #68 - Podcasting, Remote Working and Testing with Adam Wathan.

This week we are very lucky to be joined by fellow podcaster and host of Full Stack Radio - Adam Wathan. We begin discussion with his reasons behind starting a podcast, experience being a solo-host and the secret to great podcast recordings. We then move on to how he got into programming at high school - with reflection on that if he had been using a Windows machine at college, he would most likely be a .NET developer by now. As both Edd and Adam work remotely at this time, the topic of remote pair-programming and Kanban style board implementations then arises. Finally, we discuss his thoughts on Message-passing vs. strict-contracts, Smalltalk and Elixir exploration and how it is hard to give a definitive answer on the best way to begin learning TDD.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3. Be sure to subscribe to their feed if you enjoy the show too!
