Interesting. I don't very much see the need of classes yet, though.

Since this was meant to be an introductory blog, it probably would have been a good idea to explain what object-oriented programming is and how it's useful. Without that foundation, it will make no sense to the individuals that OMS is so frequently chasing off his front lawn.

I always use the analogy of a car. A car is made of numerous objects (i.e. wheels, engine, doors, brakes, etc.). Each object has its own specific properties and functions. The car facilities the interaction between these objects. Let's take the engine "object" as the example:

Properties of the engine include rated horsepower, rated torque, size, etc. The primary function of the engine is to generate power for the car. In code, all this would be written like so:

Class Engine{

Public static size = 2.0;
Public HP = 0;
Public torque;
Private oxygen;
Private gasoline;
Private on = false;

Public function __construct(){
$this->on = true;

Private function __destruct(){
$this->on = false;

Public function generate_power(oxygen, gasoline){
//some important calculation
$this->power =
$this->torque =


It would be something along those lines, just more filled out.

The car would be considered a super object, since it contains the other objects. There are practically infinite ways those could all be implemented, based on the needs of the final product and the programming style of the developer.

I have never learned php before. But I somehow understood it.
