Book Review Expert PHP and MySQL
May 20, 2010 @ 09:31:00

On PHPClasses.org there's a recent book review of a new offering from Wrox Publishing - "Expert PHP and MySQL" (by Andrew Curioso, Ronald Bradford, Patrick Galbraith). Udi Mosayev is the reviewer.

This book is for developers who have worked on several projects and have some good experience developing with PHP and MySQL, as well developers who develop high-demand applications or applications that handle lots of data and processing. OOP experience is recommended.

He talks about the subjects he specifically likes that the book covers like opcode caching, general caching techniques, Gearman and memcached.

The techniques discussed in this book are used by large sites that we all know like Digg, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube and more. If its good for them, I believe it is good for you too.

Padraic Brady recently made a post about the some of the "deception" that various publishing companies (he specifically mentions Wrox) have made when it comes to publishing books on PHP6. In his latest post he shares a response Wrox made to some of his comments.

In "The Art Of Deception Or Publishing PHP6 Books" I aired my unflattering opinions about publishers who have been selling "PHP 6" books. PHP 6, last I checked, was a bit like Leprechauns. [...] It's certainly not complete and stable, and its future feature list remains a bit flexible. You could see PHP 5.4 in 2011 before PHP 6 is finished...guessing here. As its developers would say - it'll be ready when it's ready. One day. Maybe.

He shares their response to his comments by looking at easy of the books covering PHP6 and two things they're doing to help the situation - pulling the Beginner book and a call for those wanting to make the books better to get involved.

Book Review Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP
July 13, 2007 @ 16:19:00

On the Zend Developer Zone today, Cal Evans has posted a review of one of Wrox Press' latest PHP-related offerings, "Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP" (by >Jamie Sirovich and Cristian Darie).

I'd like to say that this book has changed my way of thinking about SEO Professionals, but it hasn't. It has, however, given me enough information so that I can make my own projects more SE friendly and allow me to help my friends do the same.

Cal talks about the contents of the book, including his favorite chapter (chapter 2) that gives a quick-hit primer to the world of search engine optimization. The rest of the book is divided up into specialization topics inside of SEO like "SE Friendly URLs", "Duplicate Content" and "Link Bait". Plus, check out what Cal has to say about one of the Appendixes...

Booke Review Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP
June 13, 2007 @ 09:27:00

PHPClasses.org has reviewed a new book today - "Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP" from Wrox Publishing by Jaimie Sirovich and Cristian Darie.

This is a topic about which there is a lot to say, starting from the Google page rank algorithm, and what to do, as well what you should not do, to have your sites optimized to attract as many visitors as possible using search engine sites.

That is precisely the main topic of the book "Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP". Despite the title mentions PHP, most of the knowledge presented in this book applies to all kinds of sites, independently if they are served by PHP code or not.

Manuel notes that the "PHP part" mostly has to do with the creation of dynamic sites and working with current PHP applications (like WordPress) to make them more search engine friendly.

Overall, this is an excellent book search engine optimization - SEO. It is very complete. [...] Whether or not you are familiar with the subject, if you are looking for good a book to learn all you need to know about SEO, this may be an excellent choice.

Your SEO Plan:
Book Review - Professional SEO w/PHP A Developer's Guide to SEO
May 17, 2007 @ 17:29:00

From the "Your SEO Plan" website today, there's a new book review posted covering the Wrox Publishing book (by Jaimie Sirovich and Cristian Darie) - "Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP: A Developer's Guide to SEO".

I was very aware, when Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP arrived on my doorstep, that I reside somewhere in the fringe of their target audience. Written by a computer programmer-turned-search-engine-marketer (Jaimie Sirovich) and software engineer (Cristian Darie), this book should prove very satisfying to "left brain" readers looking for a book that gets down and dirty in the code.

The reviewer (Gradiva Couzin) mentions things she liked about the book - the topics it covers, the "red flags" it mentions - she also mentions some places where the book is slightly lacking. In particular, including just enough of the marketing side of SEO so as not to alienate non-programmers. Outside of that, though, Gradiva didn't have many complaints.
