Book Review: PHP Design Patterns by Jason Sweat
Oct 16, 2009 @ 08:30:03

Keith Casey has posted a review of the php|architect book "PHP Design Patterns" by Jason Sweat to his blog today.

Diving into the book itself, Jason covers 16 Design Patterns. He covers the basic ones like the dreaded and horribly abused and misused Singleton to the more advanced Active Record and Table Data Gateway. While he covers all of them to a good depth, there are a number that deserve special mention.

These "mentionables" include the Strategy, Observer and Mock Object patterns - all three Jason covers well with some good examples included. Overall, he found the book good, but needing some work in some areas (like in updated code samples).
