How to give content editors the right amount of freedom and responsibility for page layout (Peter Elmered / Viktor Fröberg)
Editors, designers and developers all have very different requirements and ideas of what a great CMS implementation and experience is. We will tell you about how we do to meet the designer’s requirements “Here’s how it should look”, the editor’s demands on “This is what I want to be able to edit” and give the developers the tools they need to be able to store and display the data in an easy and flexible way.
Practical Unit Testing (Aloisia Gabat)
How do you know that your code does what it’s supposed to? Sure, you can upload it and test it directly inside WordPress and/or on your site. Rinse and repeat. Or you can save time and headaches with unit testing. This talk will cover how to set up unit tests for a plugin, how to write the tests, and how to run them. We will also look at some best practices and resources for unit testing your own plugins.
Getting started with logging and monitoring (Tobias Nyholm)
When a user complains about experiencing an error, how do you find it? You probably have log files for your application, PHP-FPM, webserver and the syslog. Multiply this with every server you are running and you have a full time job reading logs. When you found all the relevant log entries you still don’t have a stack trace, request info or data about how often this error is reoccurring.
In this talk I’ll share with you how to properly do logging, reading logs and monitoring all your web services. Knowledge is everything.
The event is hosted at Aftonbladet, Västra Järnvägsgatan 21, Stockholm. If you have trouble finding the venue, please call .
