PHPUnit CodeSprint 2014/1

From TYPO3Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The PHPUnit TYPO3 extension provides helper functions and a nice back-end module for running unit tests. For many people, this extension is their first encounter with unit testing and automated quality assurance of their extensions. So we are going to have a code sprint for making this extension better.

This sprint will be the first PHPUnit codesprint in 2014 (and the second PHPUnit sprint, including the 2013 sprint). It will take place in Hamburg, Germany - kindly hosted by sitegeist media solutions and organised by Oliver Klee.


The hashtag for the event is #pucs14.

Date and Times

Friday, June 27th - Sunday, June 29th 2014

The start of the code sprint will be around 3pm on Friday.

On each day we start coding at around 10am.

Code Sprint Topics/Goals

This sprint is all about improving the extension: polish the user interface, fix bugs, add more functions, make it easier to maintain. Particularly, we would like to tackle the following topics:

  • fix lots of bugs (if possible, all known bugs) in the extension
  • make the extension compatible with the latest TYPO3 CMS master
  • update to the latest versions of PHPUnit and vfsStream
  • refactor and clean up the code
  • improve the user interface
  • integrate Jasmine


If you want to participate, just add yourself to this list. You do not need to be a team member or active contributor for this. Everybody who is willing do get their hands dirty in coding is welcome.
