Book Review: Zend Framework 1.8 Web Application Development
Nov 06, 2009 @ 09:09:18

On NETTUTS.com today there's a new review of the Packt book "Zend Framework 1.8 Web Application Development" (Keith Pope) from Fred Wu.

The flow of this book is heavily inspired by the famous Ruby on Rails book, Agile Web Development with Rails, where the author invites you to join the process of building a demo application, which in both cases is a shopping cart system.

He mentions how "short" the book is (at 350 pages), how much focus is put on MVC, the creation of the simple online store application and a bit of content on code optimization, caching and testing. Overall, he found it a good book for those that know PHP already and don't mind following along with a fast-paced read.
