Rob Allen has published another post covering the use of serverless technology and PHP to run your applications. In this new post he shows how to use img2lambda to publish your Serverless PHP layer out to an AWS Lambda instance. [The] img2lambda tool will take the layers of a Docker container and convert them to AWS layers for use in Lambda. I poked around with Clare's example and updated my lambda-php project in order to understand how it works. I also rewrote my runtime's bootstrap to make it clearer. The clever thing from my point of view is that you can build your PHP runtime layer locally using Docker and then publish the layers to AWS for use in your Lambda functions. This means you can now use the layer in different projects and have them all reference the same PHP runtime. He digs deeper into the tool, looking at the "magic" happening under the covers using Docker. He provides an example of the Dockerfile it creates and walks through what it does. He then shows how to create the layer in AWS and use a serverless framework and a PHP runtime to execute the "hello world" application. He wraps up the post showing how to test it locally, building from the Dockerfile and using a docker run on the result with simple user input.

In a recent post to his site Freek Van der Herten talks about "handcrafting mocks" in your unit testing. In his example he shows the creation of custom mocks rather than using one of the current mocking test tools. In an application I was working on I wanted to implement automated tweets. Of course, this logic should also be tested. In this blogpost I'd like to show you how you can easily handcraft your own mocks. In his application, he wanted to be able to send tweets to Twitter when certain events happened. He starts with a bit of set up showing how to use this library to set up the OAuth connection between your application and Twitter account. He then shows the class that will make the actual tweet and how to use event handling to send the message when a new blog post is published. With this all in place, he starts in on the testing, showing the creation of the custom mock (so tweets aren't actually sent) and how to use it to test that a tweet was sent. He finishes the post with a mention of a possible refactoring: using an interface instead of extending a class to make the testing more structured.
