Venturing into Object-Oriented PHP

One thing I’m doing this winter to keep myself from boredom is to teach myself a new language that will help me out in the website world. I am currently reading the book Object-Oriented PHP by Peter Lavin, published by No Starch Press. You can order it here on Amazon.

So far, it’s basically easy to understand. I’m only on Chapter Four because I’m taking it slow, but even though I have no previous experience with PHP, I still know what’s going on. It helps that I have a background in C++, because the function calling is very much the same.

I haven’t tried to make anything yet because I’m not to that point, but I have downloaded PHP5 and the Apache server in hopes that I might make something cool at some point. I’m pretty excited– this seems like a very viable way to do a lot of things for the web. I’ll update when I do make something, as simple as it might be.

Meanwhile, I need to upload all the back issues of Down The Tubes. I have been lax!
