Them's the Rules - Using a Rules Engine to Wrangle Complexity

With ever-growing software occasionally developers will find themselves amid a befuddlement built on complicated and poorly organized conditional logic. Chaos such as this is nearly unmaintainable, even by the original developer. A rules engine allows you to simplify that logic and provide more self-documenting, maintainable code. The slide focuses on Ruler, a PHP Rules Engine. This presentation was given at the Nashville PHP Meetup on September 9, 2014.
