When you reference a key on an array that doesn't exist, PHP will complain. Instead, let's code defensively. In other words, if we know that it's possible that the age key might be missing, we should check for it and only print the age if it's there. We need to add some logic. To do this, we'll finally meet the wonderful and super-common
if statement. Like
foreach, it's a language construct, and is one of those things that uses curly braces to surround a block of code. Where
foreach accepts an array and executes the code between its curly braces one time for each item, if accepts a Boolean value — in other words: true or false. If what you pass it is true, it executes the code between its curly braces. In this lesson we'll use the
else statements, and see how to combine our conditions, along with a variety of operators, to get exactly what we need.
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?
