Oops. It should be foreach($this->Workers as $Worker). That's what I get for not testing my code samples. Sorry.

Also, a note - both Bob and Jerry are just example code that reference classes that don't exist (Car, Hammer, etc...). It was meant for illustration.

If you want to add the classes to make it work, then add this code to the bottom of the file:

class Hammer
{
}

class Nails
{
}

class WoodPlanks
{
}

class Car
{
  public function DriveTo($address)
  {
    echo "Okay, we're driving to {$address}";
  }
}

I would have to bet that forgetting $this-> ranks as the most frequent PHP coding error.   I am certain that it is my most frequent PHP coding error!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

output

... code that builds a desk ...Okay, we're driving to 123 Main Street


where is the strategy
I thought strategy was 'if statement'
how is code different 'if something' happens

Sorry, I was on vacation. The strategy part of it isn't just the word"if" - strategy patterns just indicate conditional processing in general - that the SAME bit of code can be executed DIFFERENTLY based on the conditions and parameters.
