Book Description

PHP is a server-side scripting language that is widely used for web development. It provides maximum efficiency and superior security features, two of the many reasons that makes it one of the most popular programming languages in the world. With this book, you will get a deep understanding of the advanced programming concepts in PHP and how to apply it practically. This comprehensive guide focuses on some cutting-edge topics in PHP.

The book starts by unveiling the new features of PHP 7 and walks you through several important standards set by PHP Framework Interop Group (PHP-FIG). You will learn how to properly handle errors and log important bits of information to increase the efficiency of your code. You’ll see, in detail, the working of all magic methods, how to utilize command-line tools, and the importance of effective PHP OOP concepts, which will enable you to write effective PHP code. You will find out how to implement design patterns and resolve dependencies to make your code base more elegant and readable.

You will also build web services alongside microservices architecture, interact with databases, and work around third-party packages to enrich applications. This book delves into the details of PHP performance optimization, where small configuration changes can affect the application’s overall performance. You will learn about serverless architecture and the reactive programming paradigm that found its way in the PHP ecosystem. The book also explores the best ways of testing your code, debugging, tracing, profiling, and deploying your PHP application.

By the end of the book, you will be able to create readable, reliable, and robust applications in PHP to meet modern day requirements in the software industry.
