Generators' week: here we go!

January 19, 2016php, generator, english

In my opinion, generators are the most striking feature of PHP 5.5. Still, when, during a talk in Nantes in september last year, I asked who in the room was using generators, only a couple of hands were raised. Amongst about 40 people!

Several conversations I’ve had since then lead to ideas like « this seems cool, but do you have a real case for which you used a generator? ». After all, even if it seems nice on paper and in conferences, nothing beats reals-world scenarios!

So, I asked on Twitter if people using generators would like to write about their experience, to share use-cases they met and to show in which real situations using a generator can be helpful, useful, or cool!

Several developpers answered. And, so, here’s the first generators’ week!

Here are a few other posts, a bit older, which have been recommanded by other people or which I thought about later:

You would like to share your experience, a use-case, about generators? Please, do so!
Or about another subject? Same thing ;-)

This blog has recently been migrated to a static site generator and I haven't had time to setup a commenting solution yet.

With a bit of luck, I'll manage to take care of this in a few weeks ;-)
