Discussion on: Interfaces in PHP (An Antidote to chaos)

good article. interfaces are cool when using an IDE like PHPStorm that automatically recognizes them. from what I remember I never used interfaces in a separate file like you did in this example.

since I switched from PHPStorm to Atom I stopped using interfaces because I was too lazy to write them but I recognize that they are very important and necessary.

your article left me with two doubts:

  1. is there a PSR standard for naming the interfaces?
  2. is there any advantage in placing the interface in a separate file instead of in the same file as your class?
