Brandon Savage: He knows what he’s talking about…

Via PHPdeveloper.org, I’ve been following Brandon Savage’s blog for a few months.  Most recently, he’s posted a pair of excellent articles on productive and useless micro-optimizations.  These are code “enhancements” such as “change all print() statements to echo statements because echo is faster”.  Brandon takes a look at several popular micro-enhancements and offers his professional opinion on whether they are truly worth your time or not.

I find Brandon’s knowledge of PHP a great resource, and his practical approach is appreciated and it is very evident he develops in the real world rather than in abstract-land. Many of his recent posts have been focused on the beginning php developer.  So if you are a newbie or an intermediate (I consider myself the latter), Brandon’s stuff is very much worth your time.
