Aspect-Oriented Programming in PHP

About the Book

Have you ever created large application and one day your boss decides it needs to implement caching? Normally this would require you to dig through your entire code base and add lots of new code. What if I told you, you could accomplish the same thing, with only a few lines of code? That's the power of Aspect Oriented Programming.

Aspect Oriented Programming or AOP is an uconventional way of thinking about your code. It's somewhat confusing at first and some would even call it magic. In this book, I'll break down the basics of AOP and how you can start reaping the benefits in your PHP code today!
