One of the things I love about Java is its native, compiler-level support for annotations, a form of syntactic metadata which can be applied to source code but also retain at run-time to influence application behavior. I use them almost daily in my projects.
I do a fair amount of consulting and development on event sourced applications and these usually use Axon, a popular CQRS & event sourcing framework. Recently, Axon version 3 was released, supporting a number of annotations that can turn any POJO (Plain Old Java Object) into an event-sourced aggregate.
A few months have passed since the last Phing development update in October, so here’s an overview of some of the recent changes.
Below are the slides of my talk “The Road to Continuous Deployment: a case study” as presented at the PHP UK Conference 2017, in The Brewery, London.
Below are the slides of my talk “CQRS & Event Sourcing in the wild”, as presented at PHP Benelux 2017.

A few months have passed since the last Phing development update, so it’s about time to discuss some of the recent changes.
Below are the slides of my talk “The road to continuous deployment: a case study”, as presented at PHPCon Poland in October 2016.
It’s a situation many of us are familiar with: a large legacy application, limited or no tests, slow & manual release process, low velocity, no confidence…. Oh, and management wants new features, fast.
But how to proceed? Using examples and lessons learned from a real-world case, I’ll show you how to strangle the legacy application with a modern service architecture and build a continuous deployment pipeline to deliver value from the first sprint. On the way, we take a look at testing strategies and various (possibly controversial!) tips and best practices.
A few years ago I pledged to publish regular updates on Phing’s development. I’m a little ashamed that I haven’t done that for nearly three years. Needless to say, a lot has happened, so it’s about time to post an update!
The community site joind.in is the definitive community event tracker, and it’s entirely open source! Today I learned that the site has been nominated for the 2012 Impact Awards. As a conference visitor and speaker, I visit and use this site regularly (you can find my speaker profile here) and am really excited for this nomination!
