Getting yourself out of trouble with PHP anti-patterns

Getting yourself out of trouble with PHP anti-patterns

Do you have code that you’re afraid to touch because nobody really knows what it does any more? Do you have systems which would be easier to re-write than to maintain? Are developers avoiding working on various tickets because it’ll involve working with a particularly painful part of the code?

Maybe a few developers have tried refactoring over the years but given up (or made things worse!), and certain ‘bad smells’ in the code are stunting progress.

While ‘Design Patterns’ tell us how to design code upfront to solve a common problem, ‘Anti-patterns’ tell us how to rescue a struggling PHP application before it leads to a company’s downfall.

Together we’ll explore some of the common pitfalls, find out how to recognise issues before they become serious, and we’ll see how to move a failing project back into the limelight.

By the end of this session everybody will be eager to tackle those parts of your codebase that the whole team has been steering clear of for months!
