Object Oriented Programming (Course 1)


What you'll be learning

Get Object-Oriented!

In this course, we'll get you up and running with classes, objects, methods, properties and all that OO stuff by building a real (and epic) application where we battle space ships. Woh.

Expect to get really comfortable with object-oriented fundamentals, including:

  • Creating a class
  • Instantiating objects (many objects!)
  • Classes verus objects (what's the diff?)
  • Class methods
  • Visibility (that public, private, protected stuff)
  • Type-hinting
  • Class constructors (the __construct guy)

Then keep going with course 2.

I feel like this needs a few updates with some cool new php8.1 updates, more types, enums and a class looking more like https://stitcher.io/blog/evolution-of-a-php-object every now and then...

It's my favorite tutorial to share when someone needs to learn OOP, but sadly I've gotten to the point where I constantly need to say 'but this can be done in a better way nowadays'


Hey Gabs!

Thanks for the note! I actually agree. While OO doesn't fundamentally change much, enough features have accumulated in PHP over the years that these OO tutorials could probably use a facelift. It's something we're going to look into updating for 2023. And thanks for sharing the tutorial with others - that's very awesome of you :).
