The true value of objects

A session at PHPBenelux Conference 2017

Saturday 28th January, 2017

1:40pm to 2:40pm (WET)

Although the latest PHP versions provide us with enough types and keywords to enable object oriented development, the language itself is not truly object oriented. In pure object oriented languages, like Java, almost everything is an object. Even primitives have their object equivalent. Concepts that first look like simple values, can in fact be modelled as objects. This enables us to add a lot of behavior to them. These so called Value Objects make our code more readable, elegant, maintainable and dry. We will explore the possibilities and advantages of these Value Objects together, guided by some real world code samples.
