Private Methods Considered Harmful ("Do This, Not That" Excerpt)
December 10, 2012 @ 11:26:42

A while back Brandon Savage mentioned a book he was writing ("Do This, Not That") to help PHP developers learn some of the best practices associated with the language. Today he's posted an excerpt from the book for your enjoyment.

This great series of highly focused e-books will offer tips, tricks and best practices focused on core areas of PHP development, including databases, security, filtering, regular expressions, configuration and more. Since it will be a series of tightly targeted solutions, developers will be able to pick all, some or just one of the offerings that solves their specific problem(s).

This excerpt looks at private method use in your applications and why they could be considered "evil" if not used correctly.
