The Crafting Code Tour with Brandon Savage: Essential Design Patterns in PHP

About the Talk

Design patterns. They strike fear in the heart of developers. Like wild animals they seem untamable, something best left to the most advanced object oriented developers. But you can master design patterns. I will show you how. Learn about some of the most essential design patterns for PHP developers to know and love, and find out how easy it is to use them in your own application. You’ll have design patterns mastered in no time.

You don't want to miss this one! Mandrill is sponsoring free pizza and Red Ventures is hosting the location at their campus and covering beverages.

    Could we get better directions next time? Couldn't find the place. Maybe directions from I-77?

    I think we all have heard of and use some design patterns, but Brandon gave us a nice overview and left us questioning where we can introduce better practices into our own work.
