    I'm not sure if I visited every PHP Benelux conference or if I missed the first. What I am sure of however is that each and everyone of them was a blast. Afforable, well organised, good speakers, great socials and insane closing ceremonies. This year was no different, these are reviews of all the talks I visited.

  3. Walk the board - making a daily scrum useful

    For a while now I've been dissatisfied with daily scrums. For your understanding, we actually have two of them at Procurios. One is with our developer team (developer outside of the SCRUM context, meaning backend-coders writing code in PHP and the likes) and one is with the project teams. Both follow the "way of the three questions". This is not the most ideal way though.

  4. Consistency vs. "The itch"

    I assume everybody has certain rules, regulations, guidelines or conventions at their jobs/open source projects. I like structure and consistency so, as long as they are sensible, these things make me happy. Still, every once in a while, something itches. What wins, itch or convention?

    The fifth principle of the five SOLID principles is the Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP). You might expect an article on the ISP first, but I feel the internet is filled with enough posts about SOLID. This one was already finished so I'll publish it nonetheless :)
