In a new post to his blog today Michelangelo van Dam has posted his review of a PHP-related book from Packt Publishing - "Expert PHP 5 Tools".
Expert PHP 5 Tools is a new book from Packt Publishing written by Dirk Merkel. In 10 chapters Dirk introduces the reader with several PHP tools that will improve development processes and quality of code from a single developer or a team of developers. From simply syntax checking and code validation to automated testing and deploying, each chapter discusses each tool in detail and contains sample code to put the theory into practice.
Michelangelo was impressed by the book and the depth of the tools it covered including PHPUnit, PHP_CodeSniffer, XDebug, Cruise COntrol, Phing and Eclipse PDT. He suggests it as a "must read" for any developer looking to further their professional development skill.
