Free PHPUnit Training

November 10, 2010


Nick Belhomme has recently announced – in a blog post titled “PHPUnit Training Course for free” – that he is releasing the first few pages of his PHPUnit training course. This is the opening of a course that Nick developed himself and has been teaching for some time. Nick, a respected member of the PHP community, has this to say about his workshop and why he is releasing this material for free.

It is a workshop that builds a small demo application the Test Driven Development way. The reason I open this workshop course is because I strongly believe everybody should understand and use PHPUnit in their projects

He is not releasing the entire course but the free content is valuable by itself and if you like what you see, you are probably going to be interested in his full course. (Which includes a copy of his new e-book as well.

No one disputes that Unit Testing is a vital part of development these days. For those that are not doing it, Nick’s course, both the free and the not free, is a good way to get started.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PC's. For the past 10 years Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.31, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
