Building for the PHP Command Line Interface @ Nomad PHP

On my way to #10upSummit, Mr. Cal Evans reached out and asked if I’d be interested in giving my “Building for the PHP Command Line Interface” talk at December’s Nomad PHP (EU Chapter) Meetup. “Me?”, I asked, “giving a talk to an international audience?” Yes, please!

Executing PHP from the command line enables us to interact with our applications in new and interesting ways: from performing site maintenance to scaffolding new projects, CLI tools like WP-CLI, Artisan, and Drush make it easy to interface with our code without ever opening a browser.

Attendees will be introduced to popular PHP CLI tools and their default capabilities. We’ll discuss characteristics of good CLI scripts, strong use-cases for writing custom commands, then write several CLI programs across different platforms.

Tickets will be available soon if you’re only interested in attending my session (bonus: you don’t even have to wear pants!), but I strongly encourage you to subscribe to Nomad PHP; Cal and company are regularly pulling in some of the biggest names in PHP (plus me, for some reason) in an intimate – yet totally remote and accessible – setting. If you’re part of a development team, Nomad PHP even offers team subscriptions, which make great “lunch and learn” or “brown-bag” sessions.

A special thanks to Cal and Kathy Evans for reaching out and letting me be a part of Nomad PHP!
