Monks who also work in PHP, help me upgrade my SQL code?

Cody Fendant has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This is probably pretty primitive for Perl programming, but I code my SQL like this:

$sth = $db_handle->prepare("select foo from bar where id = ?") or die( $db_handle->errstr ); $id = 17; ## or whatever $sth->execute( $id ) or die ( $sth->errstr() ); $baz = $sth->fetchrow_hashref();

I'm working more and more in PHP in a current job and I see nothing like that in the code I'm working with, no binding, just raw SQL commands constructed by variable/string concatenation and fed direct to mysql_query().

What's the professional way to do this in PHP?

    PDO.

    package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
