Learning PHP Design Patterns

One of my super short reviews on the books I read in my My Way to PHP series.

Learning PHP Design Patterns by William Sanders

This books covers the basics of OOP in PHP and some design patterns from the Gang of Four. I was intrigued by the introduction which resonated with me. The first four learningphpdesignpatternschapters were well written and introduced me more into OOP and design principles.

When the book started to take on the individual patterns it become worse. The examples were a bit convoluted, the explanations weren’t that clear. I skimmed the last few chapters.

In conclusion, I liked the first few chapters which provided a general introduction to OOP and OOD but the patterns themselves weren’t represented well.
