Hi Asad Kashmiry,

If you look at PHP Development Track after 'Integrating PHP with Databases' course goes 'Object-Oriented PHP Basics' course so I guess It's not necessary to know OOP for this course but you should know PHP basics atleast. On the other hand if you are into programming you should definetly learn OOP, it's very powerfull and I would say it's like a standart in these days. Most of the programming languages uses OOP (Object Oriented Programming) and the model is same in most programming languages. If you compare PHP to C# or JAVA, I think they are very similar in OOP.
