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 or Learning to program in PHP courses. Prior experience of object orientation is not necessary.

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.
