Web developer is the “finest icing”


A global leader in the world of high end web development was in Cornwall recently to share some of his expertise.

Sebastian Bergmann, who held a two-day workshop at the Rose-in-Vale, Mithian, is the pioneer of PHP unit, an international quality standard for testing web based applications and dynamic web site development in the software language PHP.

He was invited to Cornwall as part of the successful Agile programme, started 18 months ago by Oxford Innovation as part of the Grow Cornwall programme.

Bergmann commented: “It was a pleasure working with the Cornish PHP developers, they are passionate about what they do. Adopting PHPUnit testing standards within their Agile frameworks has further enhanced their ability to deliver high quality web applications to a globally recognised standard.”

Toby Parkins, director of web development company UKNetWeb, said: “Sebastian provided the highest level of PHP web development training to our team. We’ve been adopting software approaches to delivering higher quality solutions for some time now but this level of sophistication is the finest icing on the most delicious cake.”

The Agile programme continues in January with a visit from Kevlin Henney, expert in Behavioural Driven Development, who will share his experience and knowledge with further businesses engaged in the Agile Programme.
