Workshop: Debugging PHP Applications

Conference: PHP Benelux 2018, Antwerp, Belgium
Title: Debugging PHP Applications
Links: joind.in
Format: 3 hours interactive workshop.

Sooner or later, an application will have errors. Some of them will be your fault, or that of a teammate. Others stem from third party libraries you are using. We want to be able to locate the cause of the error as quickly as possible. In this workshop, we will do exercises that will help you debug your applications more efficiently as well as writing them in a way that they get easier to debug.

We will look at the following topics:

- reading stack traces
- how to search through the code base
- writing good exception messages

Debugging Email on Staging Server

I repost some of my blog posts made @ liip. Please see here for the original post and comments: blog.liip.ch/archive/2009/05/12/debugging-email-on-staging-server.html

For one of our bigger clients, we have a setup with a test server. Their application sends out newsletter and other emails to addresses scattered through the source code. We needed to test some of the features generating emails, but there was no budget to rewrite that code. We decided for a simple solution: We trap all email on the test server and make it available from a web interface.
