Brandon Savage's Blog:
Book Review PHP Team Development
October 27, 2009 @ 07:58:11

In a recent post Brandon Savage wrote up a review about the Packt Publishing book "PHP Team Development" based on the review copy he'd been sent:

Unfortunately, I was largely disappointed by this book. I join in many of the comments by Lorna Jane in the book's writing, and I would add in that much of the text seemed simple. The author is trying to do too much, as well, in focusing on a number of topics that have sparked volumes in and of themselves (Agile programming, anyone?).

He does note, however, that it could make a good book for those just starting out with a development team with the caveat that some of the technologies and methods (like MVC and Aglie) shouldn't be considered the only way to do things. There's plenty of other methods/development techniques that could fit for any number of companies out there.

As a final note, the book is also a paltry 161 pages long, which is not nearly enough to cover the material that the author is trying to cover in any sort of useful detail, and certainly not worth the $32 price, at least to me.
