You've come a long way already, which has included using a bunch of existing, built-in functions. Now it's time to make our own! The first thing our PHP code does right now is read our pets.json file and decode it into an array, which we set on our
$pets variable. Let's invent a new function called
get_pets() that will do this work for us and return the finished array. Putting this into a function lets us reuse this logic whenever we want, in other places in our code, without having to write it all out again. This also makes organizing and updating our code more straight-forward and simple.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
