Why OOP?

40 minute intermediate seminar


Were you ever confronted with a phrase along the likes of "OOP is preferable to procedural" but no-one could really provide any solid arguments about why that would be the case? Or maybe you've tried using PHP classes yourself but couldn't really notice any proper benefits to that approach?

In this talk we'll first go over the pain points that usually come with procedural code and then discuss how OOP principles can let you avoid these. We'll learn about how you can better deal with increasing complexity in large-scale projects, how to simplify long-term maintenance of an ever-evolving codebase ... and that OOP is not actually about the class syntax at all.
