The February 1st meet up is going to be presented by James Titcumb (https://twitter.com/asgrim)
This prototype works, but it's not pretty, and now it's in production. That legacy application really needs some TLC. Where do we start? When creating long lived applications, it's imperative to focus on good practices. The solution is to improve the whole development life cycle; from planning, better coding and testing, to automation, peer review and more. In this talk, we'll take a quick look into each of these areas, looking at how we can make positive, actionable change in our workflow.
James is a consultant, trainer and developer at Roave. He is a prolific contributor to various open source projects and is a Zend Certified Engineer. He also founded the UK based PHP Hampshire user group and PHP South Coast conference.
Before/After the Meetup:
A few members will likely be in a nearby pub (location will be tweeted out) beforehand (from around 6pm) for a drink and a bite to eat, and afterwards there'll be a group heading to Soar Point (or somewhere else nearby) for a social catch up.
