Tony Bibbs' Blog:
Book Review Pro PHP
June 11, 2008 @ 09:35:52

Tony Bibbs has posted his own review of a recently released PHP-related book from APress, "Pro PHP: Patterns, Frameworks, Testing and More" (by Kevin McArthur):

First I think it's important to cover the valuable aspects of the book as that will really drive your decision whether the book is worth a read. If you are new to object oriented programming and basic design patterns you will get a fairly good introduction of how to do both in PHP.

He points out some of his favorite parts of the book - the chapter on exceptions, chapter three covering the Standard PHP library - and some of the things he thought could be improved like the order of the parts of the book (4 should be after 1) and his disappointment in the lack of security/scalability/performance topics.
