There are generally two types of programmers; those who write messy code, and those who have to deal with the mess. This small book teaches how to become the third type of programmer; the one who writes readable, maintainable code that makes life easy for themselves, their teammates, their future selves, new talent additions to their team, and possible changes of ownership.By helping you and your team avoid the various pitfalls common to object-oriented PHP projects, Object-Oriented PHP Best Practices helps take the code out of your way so that you can focus on the business problems you need to solve. The 23 commandments provide a balanced approach to theoretical best practices, productivity, long-term maintenance considerations, and performance.This is a short book that can be read in one sitting. Invest a lunch break or two reading it and you will thank yourself for it later.
