Review: Refactoring Legacy Applications Using CakePHP

Matt Curry has posted his review of the recently released "Refactoring Legacy Applications Using CakePHP" book from Chris Hartjes. The book looks to help developers get a better feel for using CakePHP in real-world applications.

Shortly after Chris Hartjes released his new book Refactoring Legacy Applications Using CakePHP he contacted me and asked if I’d be willing to review it. I jumped at the chance and Chris emailed me the DRM free PDF. After posting it to The PirateBay, I settled in and gave it a read.

Overall, Matt found the content of the book good but had a few things he might change - the "too smooth" nature of the update to CakePHP and the inclusion of a "partial refactoring" section (one that talked about only updating part of an application to the framework and integrating it with the rest of the site).
