The March issue of php|architect came out yesterday. I’m excited to see this issue finally out. I’ve taken over writing the monthly Test Pattern column from Marcus Baker and this issue contains my first column.
Writing doesn’t come easy to me. Writing this blog for the past two years has helped me improve. However, I have to admit that I was quite worried just before the column was due. I just re-read it for the first time since turning it in and I am happy with the result. This is due in no small part to some great advise and encouragement from Marcus.
This month’s column takes on the topic of organizing code. I wanted to convey some of the fundamental principles underlying the object oriented paradigm, but in a way that goes beyond objects. In the mid 90’s, I had what I consider a major professional epiphany when I finally understood object oriented programming. This month’s column is my best attempt to concisely explain the heart of that epiphany.
I’m proud of this month’s column. I hope you’ll check it out.
Chris Shiflett has some thoughts about the security corner column in the same issue.
