Chris Hartjes' Blog:
Book Review PHP 5 Social Networking
February 02, 2011 @ 09:29:25

Chris Hartjes has posted his review of the Packt Publishing book "PHP 5 Social Networking" they had asked him to review.

I'm glad I decided to take a look at this book. It's pretty dense at 450+ pages, but it really does work you through from start to finish how to build a small social networking site in PHP. Okay, it's about dinosaurs, but let's not quibble. I'm not into long-depth book reviews, so we can talk about what I liked about this book.

He likes the consistency of the book's approach to the subject and points out that it promotes refactoring and improving code over striking out and using something new and trendy. He also mentions their emphasis on security. The one thing he didn't like about the book was a simple one - there were no unit tests to back up any of the code in the book.
