TechChorus Blog:
Zend Framework 1.8 Web Application Development - Book Review
November 23, 2009 @ 11:14:32

On his TechChorus blog Sudheer has posted his own review of the Packt Publishing book "Zend Framework 1.8 Web Application Development" (by Keith Pope).

The Zend Framework community needed a book covering version 1.8+. Version 1.8 brought new notable features. Zend_Application is one among them. Zend_Application introduced object oriented bootstrapping in applications that otherwise used a procedural script. A bunch of users had difficulty understanding how to set up their applications to make use of the new bootstrapping component. All of them have seem to understand it well now, thanks to support in the official mailing lists and IRC channel.

He looks at the book and how helps to teach some of the fundamentals, like the basics of the model/view/controller design pattern, along with some of the more advanced topics as they walk the reader through the development of an online storefront application. He touches on some of the good points of the book as well as a few things that it could have done better (like the usual editing mistakes Packt is becoming known for). Overall, though, he gives it a good rating.
