It's the object-oriented code signal for property or method chains.

The symbol -> is used to access to a property or method of an object.

This is related to object oriented programming, a set of capabilities that php has.
There is also the :: operator which is intendet to access a property or method of a class.

For more information see http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/object-oriented-php-for-beginners--net-12762

Hope it helps. Regards.

I would start in structured programming. When you  commit structured programming then I would move to object oriented programming.

This is the quite common way on computer programming in general, not just in php.
