PHP Oxford meetup

This month we are joined by Mark Harrison who will be talking about "Using to Automate CI Testing of PHP Code".

Per Mark: Drone is a (free) CI tool that leverages docker to automate a whole bunch of things.

The talk will cover:

- What CI is (very quickly)
- What drone is
- Why we chose drone rather than Jenkins
- How we use drone to automate all kinds of PHP loveliness
- What to watch out for

Mark Harrison is CTO of WerAreWe. He's in his late 40s, and spent much of his life in IT in regulated financial services. However, he also did a couple of years consulting for the Government Digital Service.

WerAreWe use drone as their primary CI tool, and the talk is an honest user view, rather than a pitch from drone


If you'd like to present a lightning talk (5-20 minutes), please get in touch!


After the talks, time permitting, we'll have some discussion and drinks at the venue and then possibly move on to a local watering hole.
