When testing the PHP side of a Symfony application, tests are normally split into unit and functional: the former do not need anything in addition to some proficiency, due to their small size and isolated execution; the latter instead are more complex, slower and sometimes more brittle, because they use more components, and they involve the framework and the libraries used to build the app.

In this talk, I’ll show all the small tools, tips & tricks that I’ve accumulated over the years writing functional tests on Symfony projects, which have helped me in keeping fast, reliable and maintainable test suites.
