It’s More Than Just Style

A session at php|tek 2012

Wednesday 23rd May, 2012

2:45pm to 3:45pm (CST)

Mention PHP CodeSniffer, and most will think it’s just for style. Add passing PHP CodeSniffer to your test suites, and hear the groans. Why are we wasting time on whitespace rules? Why does it matter that my lines are longer than X characters? The answer: PHP CodeSniffer is more than just style. In this talk we will discuss what sniffs can save you from runtime errors, sniffs that can help you upgrade your PHP install, and sniffs that can help you find the bits of code that are slowing down you and your team.
