Now that we know how to build applications with PHP that “just work”, are fast and scalable, as well as secure, the next logical step is to implement processes and use techniques that help us assure that the software works correctly throughout the software’s lifecycle.

This tutorial introduces the audience to the testing of modern web applications using PHPUnit for testing the backend components and Selenium for end-to-end testing of the whole application.

But testing is only one aspect of controlling the quality of a software project. This is why concepts such as continuous integration and software metrics as well as tools such as PHP_CodeSniffer and PHP_Depend are also covered in the tutorial.
