Chris Riley, one of the organisers of PHP Yorkshire, spoke about Object Reorientation at our March event.
We are all SOLID developers who like to keep DRY, these are rules we stick to to try keep our code clean. Despite this, we often end up writing procedural code wrapped up inside objects. This code can be hard for our colleagues and collaborators to get to grips with and understand.
Chris looked at this object reorientation and looked at how we can leverage the power of object oriented design to write code which is not just SOLID, but easy to reason about and easy for others to understand.
