Iterators, Decorators, & Generators – azPHP Meetup Phoenix Arizona USA May 2019


In this meetup, we will discuss about PHP

Let’s Talk about PHP!

The term PHP is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. PHP is a server-side scripting language designed specifically for web development. PHP scripts can only be interpreted on a server that has PHP installed.

PHP is a minor evil perpetrated and created by incompetent amateurs, whereas Perl is a great and insidious evil, perpetrated by skilled but perverted professionals.”

Why PHP is important?

  • Fast Load Time – PHP results in faster site loading speeds.
  • Less Expensive Software – In working with PHP, most tools associated with the program are open source software, such as WordPress, so you need not pay for them.
  • Less Expensive Hosting – ASP programs need to run on Windows servers with IIS installed.
  • Database Flexibility – PHP is flexible for database connectivity.
  • Increased Available Programming Talent – PHP is used more often creating a larger pool of talent to choose from for modifications and building and lowering the cost per hour for those services.

Key points to be discussed in this event.

Iterators- In computer programming, an iterator is an object that enables a programmer to traverse a container, particularly lists. Various types of iterators are often provided via a container’s interface.

Decorators- Decorator in PHP. Decorator is a Conceptual pattern that allows adding new behaviors to objects dynamically by placing them inside special wrapper objects. Using decorators you can wrap objects a countless number of times since both target objects and decorators follow the same interface.

Generators – generator “is very similar to a function that returns an array, in that a generator has parameters, can be called, and generates a sequence of values”. A generator is basically a normal function, but instead of returning a value it yields as many values as it needs to.
