Community Corner: PHP TestFest Has Returned!
Sep 22, 2017 @ 13:31:08

On the php[architect] site they've posted an article from the September 2017 issue - the "Community Corner" from James Titcumb all about the return of PHP TestFest.

There is a new movement in the PHP community! Well, it isn’t exactly new, but an event called PHP TestFest is back. PHP TestFest is a global event organized by the PHP community at large, where an effort is made each time to increase the test coverage of the PHP engine itself. Around eight or nine years ago, user groups around the world coordinated to organize events spanning a few months each year, with some groups continuing events annually for several years after.

The article goes on to talk about some of the reasoning behind the TestFest and how you can help to set up an event for a local group to contribute. It then goes through the format of tests, creating new ones and how to execute them to test the result. You can find out more about PHP TestFest and how you can get involved on the main PHP TestFest site.

TestFest 2009 Kicks Off
Apr 02, 2009 @ 09:37:16

With the start of April 2009 also comes the beginning of this year's TestFest events. Zoe Slattery has posted about it:

So here we are at the beginning of the 2009 TestFest. There are currently 16 PHP user groups intending to participate, these are pretty widely distributed from Brazil, the USA and Europe.

The repository is open and available for the submissions the groups might make (more info here and here on testing procedures and how to submit the results) and you can always join the IRC channel on the Freenode IRC network - #phptestfest. You'll find plenty of help and conversation about writing tests and getting them where they need to go.
