Presented by accomplished PHP developer Lorna Mitchell (co-author of the SitePoint book PHP Master), this course is aimed at developers who want to write more readable, more sharable, and more maintainable code. For beginners to OOP, it covers an introduction to Object-oriented Programming (OOP) with PHP, inheritance, how to architect modular systems, magic methods, user accounts, visibility (public, private and protected), and much more. Its aim is to provide the basic terminology and concepts to allow you to quickly delve in the world of OO programming. Each topic is presented with a practical code demonstration, and Lorna also shares plenty of hints and tips for writing more efficient and powerful code along the way.
