Jonathan Street's Blog:
Book Review "Pro PHP Patterns, Frameworks, Testing and More"
June 09, 2008 @ 11:19:28

Jonathan Street has posted a review of APress Publishing's "Pro PHP: Patterns, Frameworks, Testing and More" (by Kevin McArthur):

When the title talks about patterns, frameworks, testing and more it's not kidding. Kevin McArthur has managed to stuff a lot of information into the three hundred and some pages which make up this book. The inevitable trade-off is that no one section is a complete introduction to the subject it's covering. Despite this the book is filled with what I can only describe as, "Ah-hah!" and "Doh!" moments

While he found the book to be overall satisfying, there were a few things he'd like to change - not enough "enterprise-y" discussion for a book with "Pro" in the title, the "jack of all trades, master of none" feeling in the chapters and some issues with the Web 2.0 chapter that he feels only "partially relate to the core subject" of the book.
