    Hi all,

    I am new to php and my level of php mastery is only basic create, update, delete, login/logout using sessions.
    I’m currently on a personal project to make a basic blog which will not go live on the web. Since i’m not using any framework or special techniques to do this site, i tend to see lots of repetitive code.

    I’ve heard a lot about php framework, mvc, oop.

    What are the difference between mvc , oop ? Which is better or which is more widely used nowadays on professional projects or even what css-tricks use.


    If by OOP you mean Object Oriented Programming then that is not a framework, it is a part of the language introduced in PHP 5 I think. Check out this for more infomation and some videos explaining it quite well.

    MVC stands for Model View Controller and is a way of organising your code, more infomation can be found here

    Hope this helps

    For PHP, I’d look into the codeigniter frameworks. It is an object oriented framework that adheres to MVC design pattern. It’s really great, and a lot of hard work has already been done for you.

    CakePHP is another one.

    Best of luck,
