Kae Verens' Blog:
Review Pro PHP - Patterns, Frameworks, Testing and More
July 01, 2008 @ 12:55:26

Kae Verens has posted another book review today covering APress' "Pro PHP: Patterns, Frameworks, Testing and More" (by Kevin McArthur).

This book is absolutely jam-packed with information useful to the medium-advanced PHP coder. SPL is described over a few chapters, and a quick intro to Zend's MVC framework is provided. Of particular interest to me were the final chapters, to do with certificate-based authentication, and a chapter near the beginning describing the upcoming features of PHP6. Great book - I really enjoyed it.

The review gets into detail on some of the chapters and some of the shortfalls that Kae saw about them. Things like:

  • The title says "frameworks" but only one is really discussed (Zend Framework)
  • The testing/continuous development sections weren't long enough
  • The "web 2.0" section was a little sparse
  • The only real web service protocol talked about is SOAP.

Overall, though Kae found the book to be worthy of a place on any developer's shelf.
