The new Zend Certification Study Guide is out and the initial reviews look good. Since this was a topic of interest to me (mainly because I've yet to take the test) I decided to dig a little deeper. I fired up my recorder and called Davey Shafik and Ben Ramsey, the authors of the new guide, to talk to them. Here to give you a little of the back story is our conversation.
They talk about:
- the release of the book
- some of the contents of the chapters (including the sample chapter on security)
- Davey's experience with the exam/Ben's use of his PHP4 certification in his work
- and the practice tests that php|architect is offering to get developers prepared.
