Stop reinventing the loop Looping over collections is something all programmers do. We keep writing the same code and building the same loops in project after project. PHP has us covered though. We don't have to continue to re-invent the loop, we can use the tools provided. The Standard PHP Library more » (SPL) gives you the tools you need An important part of the SPL is the collection of Iterator classes and interfaces. These bits of magic, like the rest of the SPL, will change the way you program. They are power tools in every PHP programmer's toolbox. Like other power tools, if used safely, they can make a difference in how you code, and how fast. Iterators help you create better programs, "Iterating PHP Iterators" will help you create iterators "Iterating PHP Iterators" will show you the basic of PHP's Iterators. You will see how to implement them in your own code, as well as use them to do eveyrthing form filtering input to stupid party tricks. This is a great book for beginners and intermediate developers. It’s a comprehensive introduction to iterators and some of the implementations that ship with the SPL. - Christopher Pitt (Iterating PHP Iterators Review) Easy start for beginners, but enough meat for those who already use Iterators - Mark (@Mark_Baker) Baker "Iterating PHP Iterators" is part of the "Learn One Thing Books" series. « less

Distilled
Domain-Driven Design (DDD) software modeling delivers powerful results in practice, not just in theory, which is why developers worldwide are rapidly moving to adopt it. Now, for the first time, there’s an accessible guide to the basics of DDD: What it is, what problems it solves, how it works, and how more » to quickly gain value from it. Concise, readable, and actionable, Domain-Driven Design Distilled never buries you in detail–it focuses on what you need to know to get results. Vaughn Vernon, author of the best-selling Implementing Domain-Driven Design, draws on his twenty years of experience applying DDD principles to real-world situations. He is uniquely well-qualified to demystify its complexities, illuminate its subtleties, and help you solve the problems you might encounter. Vernon guides you through each core DDD technique for building better software.
