Cool Tools for PHP Development

on August 12th 2021

Ben Ramsey joins us to talk about improving development workflows through Composer scripts and plugins.

Good developer experience (DX) is critical in the tools we use, whether external- or internal-facing. The easier it is for your team to do their job, the happier and more efficient they'll be. So far, the JavaScript community has cornered the market on developer tooling, but the PHP community is catching up.

In this talk, I'll crack open my toolbox and share some of the tools I use in daily development and why I think they improve the DX of projects I work on. We'll look at some familiar tools, such as PHPUnit and PHP_CodeSniffer, along with new tools like PHPStan and Psalm. I'll show how to configure these tools for better workflows through Composer scripts and plugins. We'll also see how to standardize your team's workflow with CaptainHook.

By the end, I hope you'll leave with some good ideas for improving your team's DX.
