PHPit.net has posted a new book review covering the APress book "PHP5 Objects, Patterns, and Practice".
Welcome to the second review on PHPit. This time I take a look at "PHP 5 Objects, Patterns and Practice", written by Matt Zandstra and published by Apress. I've been trying to get into OOP and Design patterns myself lately, so this book comes at the right time. Read on to learn more about this book.
He notes that, while the book is on a bit more complex topic, it provides you with some of the building blocks (i.e. a refresher on the OOP aspects of PHP5) before getting into the patterns. From there, the book dives head-first (no reference to any other book intended) into the heart of the matter - the patterns themselves. They not only introduce you to what patterns are, but they include details on several of the more popular ones too.
His overall verdict of the book was a good one, highly recommending it to anyone looking to further their knowledge on PHP5's OOP functionality or to "take it to the next level" in their code.
