Book: Professional PHP Design Patterns (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
Publisher: Wrox Press
PHP is mainstream. Wherever you look, you will see PHP meet – ups, job openings, and major companies
using this open source language to support their business. An open source language with such humble
beginnings is now heavily rooted in the enterprise world. PHP is brushing shoulders with the “ the big
kids ” now — the enterprise – level languages with support from companies like IBM and Microsoft. This
friendly confluence brings in new blood and new ideas. One of the most notable new pushes is to
develop PHP applications in a more robust, scalable, businessworthy deployment. Programmers who
have been around much longer than PHP have introduced great concepts to the PHP audience along
these lines. In this book, the focus is on one major concept: Design Patterns.
This guide helps PHP developers take advantage of the stability and features of design patterns
Design patterns are the cornerstones of building solid, stable, flexible, and feature-rich Web applications. This guide enables PHP developers to take advantage of everything they offer.
If you are unfamiliar with design patterns, this book explains what you need to know.
