Getting Started This Evening

I'm going to be introducing the IndyPHP group to PHP TestFest 2017 tonight.
I've added our group to the "groups" page on the website.

I worked through the `docker-phpqa` tutorial into a couple of issues, so I
updated the tutorial and submitted a PR.

I also created a GitHub repo for our group to collaborate
at https://github.com/IndyPHP/testfest-2017.

My plan for today is to just introduce everybody to the `phpqa` tool and
show examples of `basic` and `error` tests. That way if any members want to
get a jump-start before our next meeting they'll be ready.

Next month we'll actually start looking at the PHP codebase and discussing
what we will try to tackle.

Thanks to all of the organizers. Looks like it's going to be productive and
fun!

Ben, how did the meeting go? I’d love it if you shared some details on what you covered and your group’s response to it.

I’m working on putting together some more resources that focus on how to submit tests for TestFest, etc. Look for that before the end of this month.

Cheers,
Ben

It devolved into a discussion about Docker.

There were three regulars and one n00b in addition to myself. The Tap Room had Zombie Dust so the malt & barley connoisseurs were satiated.

I gave a brief introduction to TestFest: worldwide event, local user groups, prizes, fun, bla bla bla. Folks were invited to the IndyPHP GitHub organization where I quickly judged everyone according to their gravatar.

I talked about my experience installing `docker-phpqa` earlier in the day, lamenting how I no longer get to charge exorbitant rates to install Ubuntu packages.

We looked at a couple of example `.phpt` files, and talked some more about Docker. I said that I would consider it a 100% success if we, as a group, had at least one “good" submission to the PHP testing suite at the conclusion of the event.

Finally I gave my stump speech about cryptocurrencies and drank myself to sleep. Fun meeting all in all.
