So… It has come to this… Again… I moved from Wordpress a long time ago in favor of Octopress, version 2.x at the time. It worked beautifully, for a while, and then it was time to update, and it was messy, as it did not have a separate content from theme, but I chugged along, it wasn’t like I was writing much. Then a few months ago I wanted to use Octopress 3, and it was a mess, and when I finally got it running, my alloted time was at an end.
I started giving talks in various user groups and regional conferences last year, I felt I had something to say, and I got a chance do to it. <sarcasm>now that makes me an expert!!!111</sarcasm> I believe that every developer should at least once stand in front of an audience and give a talk. If you have ever considered giving a talk, you have my utmost support, I know it does not mean much to anyone, but hey… If you actually submit your talk to your UG or some conference, and get a chance to stand in front of an audience (and by audience it is any number of people larger than 1) you have my utmost respect.

My current project in Symfony framework, 2.3 LTS, and I need to use mockery to make my life a whole lot easier. The process consists of three steps, of which step 3 is least documented. First you need to add mockery to your composer.json among other libs you will use
