Commented on Observe This, Fool

I think you are understanding it correctly. There are different ways of implementing the pattern, and I think you are kind of describing the Laravel framework's implementation. If you noticed near the end of the video, in the EventServiceProvider, "listeners" subscribe to "publishers" which I believe is what you are describing.

Like Jeffery mentioned, I find them very handy sometimes in testing.

Commented on Widget Workshop

I would probably converting these widgets into AJAX requests if the page started getting heavy, but this is great approach.

Commented on Intro To PDO

Try calling die($e->getMessage()); instead of the one that you have.

Commented on Step 8: Booleans

An option you have there is to use the continue key word.

At the beginning of your loop, you can add an if check and if that returns true use the continue key word to skip to the next iteration in the loop:

foreach ($task as $key => $value) {
    if ($key === 'completed') {
	// do other stuff here if you want
	continue;
    }
    // do normal loop stuff
}

There is also a break key word that will immediately jump out of the loop and not process any more of the remaining iterations.

Commented on Step 7: Associative Arrays

It might possible be that you saved the index.php file when $person = []; and then made unsaved changes to the $person array. Just a guess.

Commented on Step 3: Variables

Actually that is not concatenation. What is happening is that you are passing a comma separated list of arguments to echo. Behind the scenes, echo is concatenating those arguments together (you'll notice that you have an extra space between the , and $name in the result).

You'll see that it is not concatenating if you tried to assign that "concatenated" result to a variable.

$fullGreeting = $greetings, ', ', $name;

You'll get a syntax error.
