About the Book
PHP 7 - is kind of a revolution in the way that delivers enormous power to everything from websites and mobile to enterprises and the cloud. This is the most important change for PHP since the release of PHP 5 in 2004. It has brought explosive performance improvements, drastically reduced memory consumption, and a host of brand-new language features to make your apps soar. This book makes you ready to take that revolution under your wing.
PHP 7 will be definitely faster, and speedier than before but that is not the thing we're going to discuss about in this book.
What makes PHP 7 so special?
The very first thing is of course speed. It’s been found by the developers, around the world, php 7 is twice as fast as 5.6 and in some cases it’s faster! Since it’s tested on widely used php CMS like wordpress and drupal, you can bet on it.
The founder developers have been working hard on this issue since long time. Speed really matters and the developers always want one thing. The language code-base should reduce memory consumption and increase performance.
Php 7 has touched that dream-point.
- How we can use that speed?
- How we can use our object oriented programming concepts to exploit these cool features?
- How we can use beautiful design patterns to make our php7 application simply ‘awesome’?
