Overview of this book

PHP is a beginner-friendly language, but also one that is rife with complaints of bad code,;yet no clean code books are specific to PHP. Enter Clean Code in PHP. This book is a one-stop guide to learning the theory and best practices of clean code specific to real-world PHP app development environments. This PHP book is cleanly split to help you navigate through coding practices and theories to understand and adopt the nuances of the clean code paradigm. In addition to covering best practices, tooling for code quality, and PHP design patterns, this book also presents tips and techniques for working on large-scale PHP apps with a team and writing effective documentation for your PHP projects. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to write human-friendly PHP code, which will fuel your PHP career growth and set you apart from the competition.

The build pipeline

In the previous section, we listed the many necessary steps to make our code ready to be shipped to production. In the context of CI, a combination of these steps is what we call the build pipeline: it takes the input (in our case, all the application code), runs it through several tools, and creates so-called build artifacts out of it. They are the outcome of a build—usually, this includes the deliverable (a package of the application code that is ready to be moved to the desired environment), plus additional data, such as build logs, reports, and so on.

The following diagram gives you a schematic overview of what a typical build pipeline could look like. Since it is not executed in your local environment, it requires two additional steps: creating a build environment and building an application:
