Christoph Rumpel has a new tutorial on using the ::class keyword in PHP and Laravel.
Since PHP 5.5 the class keyword is used for class name resolution. This means it returns the fully qualified ClassName. This is extremely useful when you have namespaces, because the namespace is part of the returned name.
Christoph goes through a few examples and demonstrates how this limits errors by utilizing the IDE’s auto setting of namespaces.
