Introduction to the Project1:42 with Alena Holligan
This course is designed to help you navigate the tools and methodologies used to produce powerful Object Oriented applications. We'll start with a foundation for a simple application using a framework to evolve into whatever solution meets your individual goals.
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, I'm Molina, a PHP community member, and a teacher here at Treehouse. 0:09 PHP has seen a huge amount of forward momentum and community involvement 0:14 in the last few years, and is continuing to progress as a language. 0:19 Object Oriented Methodologies allow people to write modular functionality 0:23 while Composer allows us to manage those modular pieces in a powerful way. 0:28 Groups such as the PHP-FIG are actively creating standards and 0:33 documentation, which allows developers to more quickly read, use, 0:38 and understand each other's code. 0:42 This allows modules to be easily bundled, swapped and 0:44 put into production to create robust applications 0:48 that can keep up with the ever increasing technological demands of users. 0:52 All these tools are wonderful if you know how to leverage them to solve 0:57 your challenges. 1:00 This course is designed to help you navigate the tools and 1:02 methodologies used to produce powerful applications. 1:05 We'll start with a foundation for a simple website 1:09 with the framework to evolve into whatever solution meets your individual goals. 1:12 We'll be building on knowledge taught in our courses, 1:18 such as object-oriented programming and package management. 1:21 I've included links to these courses in the notes associated with this video. 1:25 So make sure you're familiar with those concepts before you begin. 1:29 Throughout this course, I'll be adding links for you to review material or 1:33 go deeper, so make sure you're reading the notes associated with each video. 1:37
