Building for the PHP Command Line Interface @ Columbus PHP

Ahead of officially premiering “Building for the PHP Command Line Interface” at php[tek] 2016, I’ll be doing a trial run at the local Columbus PHP meetup group this month.

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 such as WP-CLI, Artisan, and Drush make it easy to interface with our code without ever opening a browser. We will discuss characteristics of good CLI scripts, strong use cases for writing custom commands, and write several CLI programs across different platforms.

Thank you to organizer Bill Condo for giving me this opportunity to practice my new talk ahead of St. Louis!
