Object Oriented PHP Videos are now out!

July 27, 2007


I’ve finally found the time to create a couple of videos on object oriented PHP!

The following videos are based on an article I wrote for Web Designer Magazine that taught OOP in PHP to total beginners.

Object Oriented Programming in PHP


With the release of php5 (in 2004,) php programmers finally had the power to code with the ‘big boys’. Like Java and C#, php finally had a complete OOP infrastructure.

In these videos, you will be guided (step-by-step) through the process of building and working with objects using php’s built-in OOP capabilities. At the same time you will learn:

  • The difference between building a php application the old fashioned (procedural) way, versus the OOP way.
  • What the basic OOP principles are, and how to use them in PHP.
  • When you would want to use OOP in your PHP scripts.

People run into confusion when programming because of some lack of understanding of the basics. With this in mind, we are going to slowly go over key OOP principles (that are universal across many languages) while creating our own PHP objects.

With this knowledge, you will be able to explore OOP further.

I currently have these videos on line:

* Introduction to Object Oriented PHP
* Why learn Object Oriented PHP

I expect to have more videos out on OOP in PHP within the next week.
