Chris Hartjes' Blog:
Book Review -- Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework
April 12, 2011 @ 09:21:43

Chris Hartjes has posted a book review of one of the latest books from Jason Gilmore, "Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework" (published March 2011)

At 240 pages I wouldn't say this is the type of book that you can really read cover-to-cover at a rapid pace. I think it is more suited as a very long and expanded HOWTO for building an application from scratch. I was also pleased to see that Jason had made the commitment to pushing Test Driven Development by having the reader write tests for the site they were building as they went along.

Chris goes on to talk about the contents of the book and how it uses a project (creating a social networking app called GameNomad) to help squeeze as much about the Zend Framework into your head as possible. In his opinion, the book is a good resource for both beginning and intermediate users of the framework and can potentially be used as more of a reference for different takes on common problems.
