Programming languages are famous for the rigidity of their syntax and the consistency of their interpretation. Often this is frustrating to the new developer who is unfamiliar with the idioms and quirks of a language, or in complicated environments like the PHP internals that effectively alter the dialect of their parent language simply by the mass of their infrastructure. By using simple, well tested templates such as the ones found in this appendix, you can focus on becoming more familiar with the truly interesting parts of the API and avoid that unwelcome initial frustration.

In the final appendix of this title, you'll look at how to move beyond the limits of this book by incorporating the work of open source developers and getting answers to those questions that just couldn't fit within these few hundred pages.
