Join author Jon Peck as he demonstrates new functionality in PHP 5.5, including generators, the try-catch-finally execution model, and a brand-new password hashing API. A number of existing behaviors, such as the foreach() and empty() functions, have also been updated, and Jon explores what changed and how it can be used. Throughout this course, you'll learn to add new functionality to a simple deck of cards class using these new and updated features, and how to use them for the basis of your own project.
(music playing) Hi, I'm Jon Peck, and welcome to PHP 5.5 First Look. In this course, we'll explore the new functionality and changes in the latest version of PHP. I'll start with new features in PHP including the password hash in API and the new op cache. Throughout this course, we'll develop practical examples using a deck of common playing cards that will exercise PHP's new and updated features. We'll even perform some bench marking to compare the speed differences between major versions. Which will be particularly helpful when determining whether or not it's worth it to upgrade.
