About the event

Join us this June for a remote session of PHP Sussex.

Zvonimir Spajic, Software Engineer with madewithlove, will be delivering his talk, 'Get, Set... STOP!'.

Wikipedia defines Cargo cult programming as "Ritual inclusion of code or program structures that serve no real purpose."

One behaviour, deeply embedded into the hearts and minds of many software developers, is the creation of getters and setter on entities. It's so widespread that IDEs have tools to do it automatically.

Why do we do it? Does it serve some purpose or is it just a cargo cult programming ritual?

Next up, Rob Waller, Senior Software Developer of 15 years, will be delivering his talk, 'How to communicate quality'.

A new talk from his 'Prove your code works' series, he'll explore professional code practices and observability within software engineering.
