PHP gives multiple ways to build strings. You previously learned about embedding variables into the string. In this episode, you will learn about the concatenating operator, which is a dot
PHP takes the left string and smooshes it together with the string on the right side of the dot. Think of it as smooshing the two strings together.
This method gives you the ability to break the code out of the string literal. Then you get the ability to call functions too.
When putting together multiple string parts in one line of code, I want you to stop and walk through the sequence of how PHP processes the concatenation.
