Zend Developer Zone:
Book Report Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework
April 18, 2011 @ 12:35:01

On the Zend Developer Zone Cal Evans has written up a "book report" about a new release from Jason Gilmore, "Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework". Cal's review covers some of the good, the bad and the "interesting" he found while reading through the book.

Those readers who know me, know that I'll pass on writing a review on a book I don't like. Having written one (and have another in the works), I know the work that goes into even a bad one. So instead of denigrating someone else's work, I'll simply not write the review than write something bad. I said all that to say this, the fact that you see this review means I found enough in this book that I like to review it.

In the "good" section he mentions that the book is for beginners and, because of this, it aims to help them over the large learning curve the framework comes with. In the "bad" section, one of his few comments is that Jason teaches "models" as database interfaces, not more general data source interfaces. He also mentions an "interesting" thing - the fact that Jason wrote up a chapter on using the Doctrine ORM with a Zend Framework app too.
