PHP Standards and Best Practices

Course Summary

PHP is a flexible language with a long history. Being such a popular language for so long means there is a lot of code out there. There are many ways to program in PHP, and not all of them are as safe, performant, or maintainable as some of the older educational materials might have you believe. Having so many options can be daunting to many developers as they grow from beginner to intermediate. Fortunately there are established best practices out there, and this course will help you learn about many of them.

    Course Syllabus

    Why Do We Need Best Practices?

    This is an intermediate course designed to teach best practices and standards to those who already know how to program PHP at a basic level. 3 steps
    • Introduction 1:38
    • History 1:09
    • Starting Right 2 questions

    Databases and International Concerns

    This stage helps to cover a few topics that are generally covered elsewhere with extremely outdated information, which these days is possible to do much more easily with core classes and functions in PHP. 10 steps

    Autoloading and Composer

    One important area for understanding best practices and standards is the area of distributing (sharing code), and using other shared code. 7 steps

    Creating Distributable OOP Packages

    Learn how packages are distributed and how you can package your code to be used by other developers. 9 steps

    Error Handling

    PHP has the idea of “errors” which are different to “exceptions” and that can be very handy in production environments if you know how they work, but can lead to a little confusion if you expect things to work differently. 8 steps
