Last PHPlondon meetup and Depedency Injection talk

Posted on 11 August 2005 by Demian Turner

I didn’t realise we covered so much territory in last month’s PHPlondon meetup. Thanks to Marc’s gift for total recall there’s a pretty good summary of what was discussed here.

Highlights for me were Marcus Baker’s presentation on Dependency Injection (slides here), discussion of books people had been reading[1], and XP-related development practices.

In other news, we had good progress last night with the PHP conference UK planning meeting, there’ll be a writeup soon but the low-down is it’ll happen probably Feb. 2006 and we should have a site up somewhere inside of two weeks.
