The first step in leveling up your skills as a developer is learning object-oriented programming for PHP or OOP.

OOP is about more than using classes in your code. It’s about creating code that is less focused on a specific action and more focused on objects — small, reusable containers for data and functionality.

Although WordPress users don’t need to learn PHP to manage their WordPress-powered websites, if you’re a plugin or theme developer, or just want to modify the default behavior of your site, you will need to have a basic understanding of PHP.

This ebook will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to get started with object-oriented PHP as a WordPress developer, including:

  • Visibility and inheritance
  • PHP 7
  • WP_Query
  • Magic methods

And more…
