It provides a solid grounding in PHP's support for objects, it builds on this foundation to instill core principles of software more » design and then covers the tools and practices needed to develop, test and deploy robust code. PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practicebegins by covering PHP's object-oriented features. It introduces key topics including class declaration, inheritance, reflection and much more. The next section is devoted to design patterns. It explains the principles that make patterns powerful. The book covers many of the classic design patterns and includes chapters on enterprise and database patterns. The last segment of the book covers the tools and practices that can help turn great code into a successful project. The section shows how to manage multiple developers and releases with git, how to manage builds and dependencies with Composer. It also explores strategies for automated testing and continuous integration.Taken together these three elements: object fundamentals, design principles, and best practice will help the reader develop elegant and rock solid systems. PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice: * Describes and demonstrates PHP's built-in object-oriented features * Breaks down the principles of object-oriented design, explaining key design patterns using practical examples. * Discusses the tools and practices necessary for developing, testing and deploying exemplary applications. What You'll Learn: * How to work with object fundamentals: writing classes and methods, instantiating objects, creating powerful class hierarchies using inheritance. * Master advanced object-oriented features, including static methods and properties, managing error conditions with exceptions, and creating abstract classes and interfaces. * Learn about the new object-oriented features introduced by PHP 7 and why they matter for your code. * Understand and use design principles to deploy objects and classes effectively in your projects. * Learn about design patterns, their purpose, structure and the underlying principles that govern them. Discover a set of powerful patterns that you can deploy in your own projects. * Learn about the tools and practices that can guarantee a successful project including unit testing; version control, build, installation and package management; and continuous integration. Who This Book is For: This book is suitable for anyone with at least a basic knowledge of PHP who wants to use its object-oriented features in their projects. Those who already know their interfaces from their abstracts may well still find it hard to use these features in their systems. They will benefit from the book's emphasis on design.
