Useful catch (\Throwable $e)

catch (\Throwable $e) turned out to be very useful while coding in PHP.

When Exception were caught in specific instances, catch throwable would catch anything that would impede the code to run

Example below in a phpUnit scenario :

        try {
            $r = $this->checkKeys($data);
        } catch (\Throwable $e) {
            $this->assertEquals($e->getCode(), 404);

Model and Reward Vulnerability on Your Team

Today’s Tip 
Model and Reward Vulnerability on Your Team
For a team to innovate, people must be willing to disagree, dissent, and challenge the status quo. As a leader, it’s your job to set the conditions for this kind of intellectual bravery. First, check yourself: Make sure you reward vulnerability, rather than punish it, and be mindful of the signals you’re sending, implicitly or explicitly, that discourage disagreement or outside-the-box thinking. Next, encourage your team members to think beyond their role and function. You can also specifically assign someone on your team to play the role of devil’s advocate — their job is to challenge a course of action or find flaws in a proposed decision. Make sure you rotate that role so you can get a variety of perspectives. Whenever you reject a suggestion, express gratitude for the idea and explain your reasoning. Finally, model vulnerability by sharing your mistakes, asking questions, and admitting what you don’t know. Laying the groundwork for open and honest discussions could help your team come up with your company’s next great idea.

Developer Manifesto by David Raleche

4 Principles are guiding this methodology

- Readability
- Quality Assurance
- Logic
- Reusable code


PSR-2 code styling
Function no longer than 50 lines
PHP doc Block
TypeHint your functions

More information:

For better code readability we suggest PSR-2 code styling to be applied. We consider a function bigger than 25 lines is not an efficient function. For engaging this methodology we recommend 50 lines maximum per function. DocBloc are essentials. Swagger in a case of API writing is essential to be present.
A developer should be able to explain his work easily and quickly and should use materials to do so

Quality Insurance

No PHP error message
No PHP Warning messages
No PHP Notices
No hardcore credentials
Unit Testing

When executing the code we expect the quality assurance team to verify that no PHP errors, warnings, notices are produced. We also expect the QA team to go throughout the code to verify that no hardcore credentials are present within the code. Unit Test writing should be edited by QA team preferably


DRY (do not repeat yourself)
KISS (Keep it Stupid Simple)
SOLID principles

 Reusable Code

Use PHP throw exception
Use Object oriented techniques
Use static function

Use PHP throw exception
Use Object oriented techniques
Use static function

Add the following your PHP too get rid of PHP notices, warnings

ini_set('display_errors', 1);
ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1);

Amazon Principles

— This is great for other companies to be inspired —

Leadership Principles

We use our Leadership Principles every day, whether we’re discussing ideas for new projects or deciding on the best approach to solving a problem. It is just one of the things that makes Amazon peculiar.

Customer Obsession

Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers.


Leaders are owners. They think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say “that’s not my job.”

Invent and Simplify

Leaders expect and require innovation and invention from their teams and always find ways to simplify. They are externally aware, look for new ideas from everywhere, and are not limited by “not invented here.” As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods of time.

Are Right, A Lot

Leaders are right a lot. They have strong judgment and good instincts. They seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm their beliefs.

Learn and Be Curious

Leaders are never done learning and always seek to improve themselves. They are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them.

Hire and Develop the Best

Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others. We work on behalf of our people to invent mechanisms for development like Career Choice.

Insist on the Highest Standards

Leaders have relentlessly high standards — many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and drive their teams to deliver high quality products, services, and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.

Think Big

Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. They think differently and look around corners for ways to serve customers.

Bias for Action

Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking. 


Accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency, and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size, or fixed expense.

Earn Trust

Leaders listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. They are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume. They benchmark themselves and their teams against the best.

Dive Deep

Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and are skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ. No task is beneath them.

Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit

Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, they commit wholly.

Deliver Results

Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.

What HTTP status response code should I use if the request is missing a required parameter?

The 422 (Unprocessable Entity) status code means the server understands the content type of the request entity (hence a 415(Unsupported Media Type) status code is inappropriate), and the syntax of the request entity is correct (thus a 400 (Bad Request) status code is inappropriate) but was unable to process the contained instructions. For example, this error condition may occur if an XML request body contains well-formed (i.e., syntactically correct), but semantically erroneous, XML instructions.
