New on his blog, Federico Cargnelutti has posted his own review of a new book from Packt publishing - "Zend Framework 1.8 Web Application Development".
Zend Framework is one of the most popular and hottest open-source frameworks being used today. The number of books about Web development using Zend Framework has increased over the last couple of years.
He points out that the book isn't aimed at those just starting out with the Zend Framework. Readers should have a good grasp of the basics under their belt before starting. The book gives you a well-rounded look at developing Zend Framework-based applications and, as Federico notes, it's a "very well-written, nicely structured and full of highly practical advice" and that the book met his expectations.
