To keep programming productive and enjoyable, state-of-the-art practices and principles are essential. Object-oriented programming and design help manage complexity by keeping components cleanly separated. Unit testing helps prevent endless, exhausting debugging sessions. Refactoring keeps code supple and readable. PHP offers all this-and more.
PHP in Action shows you how to apply PHP techniques and principles to all the most common challenges of web programming, including:
- Web presentation and templates
- User interaction including the Model-View-Contoller architecture
- Input validation and form handling
- Database connection and querying and abstraction
- Object persistence
