Due to the traveling we didn’t get to do the Twitch Live stream on Sunday so I’m hoping to finish the PHP login course off this Sunday (15th)

On Tuesdays (12th) YouTube live stream we continued building the proof of concept for the PHP registration course. Someone in the chat spotted that I wasn’t testing the code in PHPUnit, this raised a question about when to test the code. The code will certainly be tested but at this stage I’m just building a proof of concept and I’m literally throwing code at the IDE to see what sticks and to get a feel for the flow of the application.
