Brandon Savage:
"Do This, Not That" Now Available!
December 20, 2012 @ 10:50:36

Brandon Savage has officially released his book, "Do This, Not That" - a book targeted at beginners to the PHP language, trying to teach them best practices for some of the most common situations they might come across.

Too many books on best practices read like a manual. They are dry, boring and cover topics that you don't care about. "Do This, Not That" is different. A collection of essays, it highlights those areas for which best practices are either not well known or not well defined. It offers clear solutions that will be easy to implement. I've taken the time to research and identify what I feel are the best practices, and condensed it into a two hour read that will leave you feeling empowered, not exhausted.

If this sounds interesting to you, you can pick up a copy on the official site for about $30 USD and, if you're more of a try-before-you-buy sort, you can read a sample chapter covering type hinting.
