+ - OO PHP - the best resources

Submitted by evanism
evanism (600676) writes "Given that the vast majority of PHP code these days is heading towards OO, it is time this old warhorse learns some new ways.

I've been dabbling in OO PHP for 2 years now, but I have never really felt that it is "better" than procedural (of which I am 100%). I am trying to find a resource (book, online, etc) that will convince me that OO is the future.

My gripe? Every time I start enjoying some material it descends very rapidly into MVC, unit testing and frameworks. The writing is poor quality and the writer clearly knows their stuff, but couldn't relate a flood to a storm. While these may be interesting independently, every time I have started to use these I have felt my *actual* output dropping by a factor of 20 or 50, stuff takes days not hours and my "fun" evaporates. So I give up on them....

Now, before I get bashed for being Too Old, keep in mind I am looking for good readable, convincing material to learn from and convince me of the New Ways. Keep the flames low so this won't be learning by fire!"
