The 5th edition of this popular book has been fully updated for PHP 7, including replacing the PEAR package manager with Composer, and new material on Vagrant and PHP standards. It provides a solid grounding in PHPs support for objects, it builds on this foundation to instill core principles of software design and then covers the tools and practices needed to develop, test and deploy robust code. PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice begins by covering PHPs object-oriented features. It introduces key topics including class declaration, inheritance, reflection and much more. The next section is devoted to design patterns. It explains the principles that make patterns powerful. The book covers many of the classic design patterns and includes chapters on enterprise and database patterns. The last segment of the book covers the tools and practices that can help turn great code into a successful project. The section shows how to manage multiple developers and releases with git, how to manage builds and dependencies with Composer. It also explores strategies for automated testing and continuous integration. Taken together these three elements: object fundamentals, design principles, and best practice will help the reader develop elegant and rock solid systems. PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice: Describes and demonstrates PHPs built-in object-oriented features Breaks down the principles of object-oriented design, explaining key design patterns using practical examples. Discusses the tools and practices necessary for developing, testing and deploying exemplary applications. What Youll Learn: How to work with object fundamentals: writing classes and methods, instantiating objects, creating powerful class hierarchies using inheritance. Master advanced object-oriented features, including static methods and properties, managing error conditions with exceptions, and creating abstract classes and interfaces. Learn about the new object-oriented features introduced by PHP 7 and why they matter for your code. Understand and use design principles to deploy objects and classes effectively in your projects. Learn about design patterns, their purpose, structure and the underlying principles that govern them. Discover a set of powerful patterns that you can deploy in your own projects. Learn about the tools and practices that can guarantee a successful project including unit testing; version control, build, installation and package management; and continuous integration. Who This Book is For: This book is suitable for anyone with at least a basic knowledge of PHP who wants to use its object-oriented features in their projects. Those who already know their interfaces from their abstracts may well still find it hard to use these features in their systems. They will benefit from the books emphasis on design. They will learn how to choose and combine the participants of a system; how to read design patterns and how to use them in their code. Finally this book is for PHP coders who want to learn about the practices and tools (version control, testing, continuous integration, etc) that can make projects safe, elegant and stable.

Practical PHP and MySQL Website Databases is a project-oriented book that demystifies building interactive, database-driven websites. The focus is on getting you up and running as quickly as possible. In the first two chapters you will set up your development and testing environment, and then build your first PHP and MySQL database-driven website. You will then increase its sophistication, security, and functionality throughout the course of the book. The PHP required is taught in context within each project so you can quickly learn how PHP integrates with MySQL to create powerful database-driven websites. Each project is fully illustrated, so you will see clearly what you are building as you create your own database-driven website. You will build a form for registering users, and then build an interface so that an administrator can view and administer the user database. You will create a message board for users and a method for emailing them. You will also learn the best practices for ensuring that your website databases are secure. Later chapters describe how to create a blog, a product catalog, and a simple e-commerce site. You will also discover how to migrate a database to a remote host. Because you are building the interactive pages yourself, you will know exactly how the MySQL and PHP work, and you will be able to add database interactivity to your own websites with ease. Adrian West resigned as a chartered engineer and has been teaching in one form or another since 1982. He introduced computers into his work place in 1989 and taught the staff how to use them. For 13 years he has designed and produced websites for businesses and charities in his present location Colyton, Devon, UK. He served as a computer technician to about 100 locals. He stopped visiting and teaching people five years ago so that he could concentrate on his favourite occupation, designing websites. To avoid disappointing his former customers, he launched his free computer help website www.colycomputerhelp.co.uk. He also writes monthly computer help articles in two local magazines. Adrian is the author of Practical HTML5 Projects; Apress May 2012; ISBN-13: 978-1-4302-4275-8. Frustrated by over complicated MySQL manuals that assumed the reader would fill in the many gaps in the instructions, he researched, tested and developed a fully explained and simplified method to eliminate the difficulties he experienced; this book is the result.
