As projects grow in size and complexity, it can be easy to get lost in your own code base. Does this function return X, or Y. Can it return null? Does the doc block still match the function? Is this function even used anymore? We will use static analysis to answer these questions, and identify potential problems in our code. We will dive into what static analysis is, and a few of the tools that are available.
A while ago I wrote about Decoupled, Headless and traditional CMS architecture. The post is about choosing which one is right for you. I wrote about the different architecture characteristics and the consequences it has. Knowing the differences will help you pick the right one for you. Based on that post you could think that you have to choose between Decoupled or Headless. But maybe there is more to choose from.
As a software engineer that mostly practices object oriented programming (OOP) I value principles like SOLID. When architecting apps I prefer a layered approach. I have typical layers like Application, Domain and Infrastructure. This helps me separate concerns and build a maintainable codebase. With this post I want to share how I try to create loosely coupled and maintainable software.
Tegenwoordig wordt er veel gesproken over “Headless” en “Decoupled” Content Management Systemen. Het lijkt een nieuwe trend te zijn, maar wat is het verschil met een traditioneel CMS en waarom zou je kiezen voor een headless of decoupled CMS?
Progressive Web App(PWA) is a term that has been thrown around quite a lot lately. But what exactly is a PWA? And how do we update our plain old website to be a cool hip PWA? Together we will explore how we can go from our current website to a full-fledged PWA. We will learn a thing or two about service workers, the offline web, and cross-browser compatibility.
In this article I want to talk about the use of behavior driven development (BDD) frameworks. BDD Frameworks let you create executable specifications which you can use for automated testing and documentation. Popular frameworks include Cucumber, Behat, Behave, etc. They all implement Gherkin as a specification language.
A couple of days ago I was at the Dutch PHP Conference where I went to a talk about [Content Security Policies by Matt Brunt. Although we follow the OWASP top ten list, I never dived into them that much. We have written a bit about them before, but I want to go a little further since they are really handy when trying to prevent XSS attacks.
Ibuildings organiseert elk jaar een internationale conferentie rond PHP technologie: de Dutch PHP Conference (DPC). Afgelopen week was alweer de 11e editie van onze succesvolle conferentie waar zo’n 630 developers, software architecten en community leden in de Amsterdamse RAI bij elkaar komen.
