Abstraction. Encapsulation. Polymorphism. Interfaces.

Whether you’ve been programming in PHP for years or are just starting your journey, these terms can be overwhelming. On top of that, people who already understand these concepts act like they're so easy, talk right over the simple questions, and never explain the basic concepts in a way that actually makes sense.

We'll dive into this Object-oriented terminology, complete with real-life examples in a way that makes sense and allows you to utilize OOP immediately.

Great presentation. Going over definitions was very helpful.

Not quite the presentation I was thinking it would be (silly me, I should learn to read abstracts better). Still, great personality, and great presentation on general OO terminology and I wish I had had a presentation like this when I was starting out.

Alena does a great job of presenting everything. This talk, in particular, was review for many in the audience and she did an awesome job answering audience questions in the midst of the talk.

I really loved that she asked one of her friends to take notes and she would tell him places where she needed to expand topics or make corrections.

This was a very helpful session - a nice refresher if you haven't been in code for a while. The slides will be very helpful, with succinct examples of the different parts of OO PHP laid out.

Great, comprehensive, well done presentation. Good level of detail mixed with accessibility.

Very knowledgeable and explains things in such a simple manner. I wish I could have had someone explain it like that to me when I started out in the field. I plan on using the speaker's examples when talking to newbies.
