Zend Developer Zone:
Book Report A Beginner's Guide to Zend Framework
December 21, 2010 @ 14:42:53

On the Zend Developer Zone today there's a new book review from Cal Evans covering a recent release from McGraw/Hill (by Vikram Vaswani, frequently posted on the ZDZ) called Zend Framework, A Beginner's Guide.

Vikram has been a long-time contributor to DevZone and is the author of our most popular article series, Zend Framework, A Beginner's Guide. [...] The language is easy to read, the examples are clear and there's even a joke or two in there that will make you groan. In short, I would recommend this book to any PHP developer with a firm grasp on object oriented programming in PHP. If you are not comfortable with OOP, this is not the book for you.

He gets "the bad" of the book out of the way first mentioning the book's tendency to jump from subject to subject and how he suggests models should be in Zend Framework applications (going with Doctrine over custom models). On the good side of things, he mentions the easy to follow writing style, the very complete code examples and the "complete" feel the book has.
