Is "__construct" a default value?
In my notes and codes, I noticed that using the __construct is mandatory to call the arguments. So, if I want to use any other name for this function (like myValues for example) it will not work!
Am I right?

__construct method is the only access point for arguments when creating a new instance of a class, if you need other functionality to be executed upon creating a new class instance - you can call your additional methods from within the constructor.
Hope that helps.
