Inspired by Holger Woltersdorf and his post on the 24 days of December website I thought I could write a little thank you note. At least it is the time of the year to get all warm and fuzzy, so let’s do this.
Over the last couple of weeks I did a talk about Codesmells and Refactoring at the International PHP Conference, the PHP user group Dresden and the PHP user group Munich.
At the PHP User Group Munich in March I presented a talk called “Automate all the things”. Its an introduction into automation with Ansible, Ant and Jenkins. It’s basically about setting up servers and deploying your application to different environments by just pushing a button. The talk was recorded and is available on YouTube so have fun 😉
Yesterday I gave a talk at the PHP User Group in Mannheim.
Over the last couple of month, my Twitter feed recurrently showed me tweets like “If you feel safe releasing on Mondays, why don’t you on Fridays” or “If you can’t release on a Friday you can’t release at all”. I didn’t like the tone of this tweets, and they felt wrong.
This week I gave two talks at the International PHP Conference & webtech Conference in Munich.
A while ago I had a look at our git commit messages and found myself in some kind of a whatthecommit mess. I remember clearly that we agreed on doing commit messages the git, or as I call it, the Beams way, don’t worry, I’ll explain what that means a bit later. But agreeing obviously wasn’t enough, to actually follow the rules.
If I would have a mantra, wich I don’t, it would be something like „never stop learning“. I try to keep an open mind and take inspiration from new things. But I do this development thingy for quite a while now and time builds opinions and more and more time toughens those opinions.
Some time ago Erika Heidi gave a talk at the PHP User Group Munich about Ansible and Vagrant. In a conversation we had afterwards she mentioned that Ansible is great for deployment too and that kind of stuck with me.
A while ago I gave a short talk at our office in Frankfurt. I talked about 10 git tips that come in handy when doing version control with git.
