Hi Emerson,

I can recommend two resources.  Take a look through these slides, "Your Code Sucks, Let's Fit It" ( and also this book, "The Art of Readable Code" (

I hope those help.

Hello Everybody,

I was looking at some PHP code from frameworks like CodeIgniter, CakePHP. Their code looks so succinct  so elegant and so professional. I'm trying to see if I can write PHP code like that. (I'm not talking about OOP vs. functional)

Is there anything that you'd recommend besides the advice of "keep reading their code" ? How does one learn to write PHP in such way?

Thank you for pointers!
