|Object Oriented Programming in PHP - Dec 2009 Meeting|
Posted: 12/15/2009 by Chad Henderson
Vance Lucas will be giving his talk "Object Oriented Apologetics"
In defense of object-oriented programming - How and why you should use object oriented programming for your next project. This talk is for PHP programmers who are just learning about object oriented code, who cling to old excuses ("object oriented code is slower"), or who are otherwise unconvinced of its usefulness. Concrete real-world examples of common scenarios and challenges that programmers face will be presented, and how taking an object oriented approach is better than a procedural one in most cases. Copious code examples in both object oriented and procedural approaches will be provided throughout, and the differences and benefits of the object oriented approach will be explained.
Join us at 6:30 pm at the Oklahoma City Coworking Collaborative : http://www.okccoco.com

A DISCUSSION ABOUT PHP FRAMEWORKS
The meeting this month will be an open discussion about PHP Frameworks. Should you use a framework and if so, which one? There are many to choose from and it can be hard to tell them apart. Hopefully, together, we can shed some light on this subject.
So come join us at the okcCoCo and bring your laptop (hopefully with a demo of your favorite framework), a willingness to participate and an open mind!
