Making best use of PHP in larger applications
Object orientation is now included in the Learning to program in PHP and PHP Programming courses. This course is still
available (runs it on request even if just for one delegate) for delegates who are selftaught
in PHP or have been on a previous (before 10.2014) PHP course.
This course introduces you to object oriented
programming principles, and teaches
you how they are implemented in PHP. After the course, students will be able to
design and write their PHP based applications to take full advantage of the
object oriented facilities in PHP.
Prior knowledge of PHP to the level taught on previous PHP Programming
Learning to program in PHP
Prior experience of object orientation is not necessary.
Getting the most from your Well House Consultants course
Object Oriented programming techniques enable larger applications
and systems to be written and maintained in a controlled manner without ongoing
programming work getting out of hand. System life cycles can be extended, with
increased code re-usability, maintainability and robustness.
