I seized the time on the tram yesterday night to take a look at it and I have to admit I'm quite impressed. Stephan managed to write down a lot of practical experience in respect to the implementation of OO patterns with PHP.
Tobias talks about the structure of the book (recommending it to anyone looking to learn OOP in PHP), and mentions some of the chapter topics including:
- New OOP features in PHP5
- Basic OOP concepts
- Generation Patterns (Singleton, Factory, etc)
- Behavior Patterns (Subject/Observer, Visitor, Iterator)
While some books only touch the theory of design patterns and avoid giving practical examples to the user, Stephan manages very good to combine both.
