In my travels working with clients worldwide, I’ve had the .. Pleasure .. of working on many of the biggest PHP code bases and applications on the planet. Often, I’m there because they are broken, and I’m always responsible for getting them fixed. One thing is for certain—there are a lot of developers, managers, and architects out there who are making the same mistakes as everyone else. From growing your development team from 5 to 50, or your code base from 10,000 to a million, there are clear patterns and mistakes. Join me as we investigate some of my favorites and how to both avoid and learn from the mistakes of others.
