Book Review: PHP Team Development
Oct 15, 2009 @ 08:40:05

Lorna Mitchell has posted a new review of a new book from Packt Publishing - "PHP Team Development":

Overall I was quite disappointed by the book - although at least half of that was due to the poor written English contained there. [...] That said, for a brand new team of PHP developers with no previous experience of working in a team, there were some useful points in this book.

She mentions some of these core concepts the book covers including the recommendation of source control, templating and object-oriented software. She also points out a rather "different" sort of recommendation the author makes - splitting out the parts of a MVC application into different teams with a merge at the end.

On the whole, a perfectly nice book for beginners but if you are already working in a team then you probably won't get a lot from this experience.
