Have you ever heard yourself saying something like this in one of your projects? I know that it happened to me a lot of times!
When I was given a task at my job, I would usually go and search for an available open-source package on packagist.org - and if nothing that suited the needs was available, I would go and build the solution for the specific problem I was given.
A lot of times, usually a couple of weeks or months later, I had to solve a similar problem and found myself copying parts of the code that I've written earlier.
Maybe I had to tweek the code a little bit, but at the end I was duplicating my existing solution.
That's when I began to think of my code as packages. That's also where most of my open source packages come from. It's stuff that I built and use in real-world applications in my day job.
And it's not about open source!
If you do not care about open source, or simply are required to close the source for whatever reason, building packages will still benefit you, your team-members and your employer.
There are so many benefits when you start encapsulating your code into smaller, more manageable chunks of packages:
And many more.
PHP Package Development will teach you everything that I've learned about good package design, along with tips on how to get started with open sourcing your package, how to make use of automated tests and much more.
I really think this is a course that every PHP developer should be exited about - I am!
I am Marcel, managing partner and developer at Beyond Code and guest instructor at Laracasts. I'm running Beyond Code – a company who's building tools for developers like you. We provide Tinkerwell, Invoker, HELO and others.
Over the last 7 years I have created more than 100 open source packages for myself, my company, or my own Chatbot framework.
The packages have been downloaded more than 288.2 million times, found it's way into the Laravel Core and are being used in countless of applications all over the world.
Whether you are going to open source your package, or rather keep it to yourself, this video course will show you how to make use of automated continuous integration systems like TravisCI for automated testing or StyleCI for automated code-formatting.
As you may know, I am a big Laravel enthusiast and most of my open source efforts are centered around the Laravel framework.
That's why this course will not only cover framework-independent packages, but also add in-depth tutorials on how to create great packages, tailored specifically for Laravel. Making use of custom routes, service providers, views, commands and much more.
Every package starts with...
Your first test
Test Driven Jokes

Git git hooray
Publishing on Packagist
