- Montreal 2010
How much effort is required to adapt your code to your customers' change requests? Is it easy, or is it cumbersome and tedious? And what about your code's complexity and readability? Is everything crystal clear, or are there parts of the code base that nobody dares to touch anymore? How often do you need to fix bugs after a release? And, by the way, how easy is it to roll a release anyway?
If any of these questions made you blush with embarrassment, it's high time that you attend the PHP Days Montreal! Join Sebastian Bergmann, Arne Blankerts and Stefan Priebsch and learn how to turn bad code into good code and become better, more professional PHP developers. No question goes unanswered when the trainers pull up an editor and explain best practices as they code a sample application live.
