Slashdot.org:
Book Review PHP Hacks
July 12, 2006 @ 12:18:35

Ever the fount of technical knowledge, Slashdot.org has posted this new book review covering the O'Reilly book "PHP Hacks" by Jack Herrington.

Given the current popularity of the Web development language PHP, it makes sense that newcomers to the language have a large number of introductory and reference volumes from which to choose. But for the more advanced PHP programmer, there are far fewer titles that explain how to make the most of the language, by applying it to solve relatively substantial problems. One such book is PHP Hacks: Tips & Tools for Creating Dynamic Websites.

They explore the contents of the book, noting that the bredth of topics covered is a bit more than they wanted to get into (and to check out the book's website for more). Overall, their review is good - the book does want it says and provides helpful and handy bits of code to help you just when you need it. There were a few technical issues they noticed, but, on the whole, it's a positive review.
