Ian Barber's Blog:
Book Review Expert PHP 5 Tools
June 02, 2010 @ 12:08:14

Ian Barber has posted a book review to his blog today covering the Packt Publishing book Expert PHP5 Tools from Dirk Merkel.

[It] is a tour through a variety of processes and systems that the author suggests should be in use by any serious PHP developer. [...] The book is aimed squarely at developers, though most of the advice only really applies if implemented by an entire team, so the natural audience is team leads or one man bands, where decisions regarding coding standards or framework usage are under their control.

He talks about the quality of the writing and how well the topics are covered and how each chapter seems to read like an in-depth tutorial on the given topic (things like phpDocumentor, Eclipse, Subversion, frameworks and UML). He does mention one or two things he would have liked to see out of the book that weren't there like more of a description on problems/issues that popped up using the tools.
