PHP has become an extremely powerful web development platform and, since PHP 5, it supports a pretty good and capable object model, leading to the design of high quality Frameworks such as the eZ components or the Zend Framework. But before you can start using them you might want to learn a bit more about OOP.

This tutorial is an in-depth introduction to object-oriented and pattern-based programming using PHP 5. You will learn everything neccessary to write your own cutting edge components and applications, how to use and extend components from other people and companies, and how and when to use and not use objects. And we won't stop before we've heard about iterators.
