Assignment: Create a PHP simulation of the Game of Life.
The game of life has the following rules. The "world" is a matrix of n by n cells. Any cell inside the world can either live or die on the next day according to preset rules. The rules are: a living cell lives to the next day if it's got 2 or 3 immediate neighbours and dies in any other case. A new cell is born in a free spot if it has exactly 3 immediate neighbours. You can randomize the initial state of the world.
You are required to illustrate an indefinite simulation of a game of life using PHP and Ajax. We shall pay attention, among other things, to your code elegance, formatting, and application design overall. Your app needs to, at least, resemble an MVC approach and make use of OOP.
