Demystifying Object-Oriented Programming

Very clear explanations. Alena went line by line on her example code and explained everything. Very helpful to me! Looking forward to the slides.

Audience was awesome!

Knows her stuff. Walked me through a starter tute on traits, and pointed out where I can improve my OOPing in PHP.

I'd encourage the presenter to practice her presentation to the point where nerves don't show. Not to worry, it wasn't distracting.

Audience participation mechanism was good. I think the try at pair programming went a little flat, but that's likely the audience rather than the presenter. ^_^

Described objects and classes to a T. Also explained how you can have classes relate to one another including abstractions, parent/child relationships, traits, interfaces and much more. I specifically was introduced to traits and interfaces as an alternative way to share information between classes on the same hierarchical level rather than extending the class which is limited to one connection. The one thing that would help was to structure the problems to work on prior to the talk so that there is a defined issue to fix or code to build.

This course definitely cleared up a few things I didn't fully understand. Overall good talk.
