Thomas Buck:
Tom's PHP Commandments - Take heed
April 17, 2013 @ 12:23:20

Thomas Buck has put together what he calls "Tom's PHP Commandments" (nine of them) that developers should follow when developing applications with the language. Among his suggestions are things like:

  • ALWAYS do the simplest thing that will work
  • NEVER trust anything that comes from the user
  • NEVER use include for controlling logic
  • NEVER create a file of useful functions, even if it's called helpers.php

There's also been some discussion about this list over on Reddit - you can comment on it over there if you agree/disagree with some of his points.
