The Complete Guide to Object-Oriented Programming With PHP (Part 1)

Introduction
Learning object-oriented-programming is one if not the most valuable skills a web developer can learn.
For instance, there are places, like London, that are so competitive that you must have OOP among your abilities in order to get a job as a PHP Developer.

Error Monitoring in Symfony

Symfony is a PHP model-view-controller framework used to develop web applications. The main reasons Symfony has gained fame among the developer community are its database engine compatibility, its faster development, and its robust system. These features make it easy to develop and customize web applications.
To make your web application successful, you should consider how user experience is affected by the inevitable errors that pop up in production. Customers can walk away from a purchase or churn out from a subscription when applications do not run properly. A fast response to critical problems is essential. To minimize customer impact, it is important to track and fix issues quickly.

Top 10 PHP Errors From 1,000+ Projects (and How to Avoid Them)

Recently, we looked at our database of thousands of projects and found the top 10 errors in PHP apps. We’re going to show you what causes them and how to prevent them. Avoiding these “gotchas" will make you a better developer.
Because data is king, we collected, analyzed, and ranked the top 10 PHP errors. Rollbar collects all the errors for each project and summarizes how many times each one occurred. We do this by grouping errors according to their fingerprints. We group two errors if the second one is just a repeat of the first. This gives users an excellent overview instead of an overwhelming big dump like you’d see in a log file.

PHP Monolog Tutorial: A Step-by-Step Guide

In application development or maintenance, logging is very important. It gives you the right amount of data that you need to help you monitor your application, logs, databases, code, and web services. Monolog is the existing standard logging library for PHP. It is most popular in PHP frameworks such as Laravel and Symfony, where it implements a common interface for logging libraries.
This article talks about the step-by-step process of using PHP Monolog in your application.

18 PHP Tools for Developers of All Levels

PHP is a fast scripting language that is ubiquitous with web development. WordPress uses the language as it’s core interface for developers to enhance the platform. It’s relatively easy to learn and is well supported by the development community.
While PHP helps developers create web applications quickly, there is no development environment associated with the language. By contrast, a development environment such as Visual Studio from Microsoft comes with many features available from installation. Visual Studio has features for coding, debugging, and deploying available to developers straight out of the box.

Functional PHP: A First Approach

Functional PHP? Well, PHP is not a functional language but some functional techniques may be used to improve our code: better readability, easier to maintain => cheaper code. 
For many years, PHP was scripted in a procedural way, all in one file with functions everywhere. After version 5.*, applications have been written using the Object Oriented paradigm (OO). But rarely do we think of PHP in the functional paradigm. Of course, PHP is not a functional language, but we should be able to use the best of each paradigm. It’s not about OO against functional programming (FP), or to define which one is better.
