SitePoint PHP Blog:
PHP The Right Way The Book
February 03, 2014 @ 12:05:57

On the SitePoint PHP blog today Bruno Skvorc talks about one of the best resources out there for people new to the PHP language (or even those wanting to hone their skills) - PHP: The Right Way. In his post he talks about the guide, it being published on LeanPub and where the proceeds from the book are going.

We can't keep the newbies away, and we can't educate the clients because most clients learn exclusively on mistakes. Shared host environments are also to blame, because their plans seldom include the most recent version of PHP, and are, due to price and ease of use, still the preferred hosting solution for legions of newcomers. So what can we do to spread best practices?

PTRW is a community effort, a website built entirely around spreading best up-to-date PHP practices. It's far from exhaustive - instead, it tries to bullet-list the things you should pay attention to, and links to quality resources where one can learn more about the various aspects it covers.

The book is an online resource, but it's been put on LeanPub to make it more portable and available offline. Since the book is a community resource and no one person should make the money from it, the choice was made to have all proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He finishes off the post with a brief interview with the book's maintainers Phil Sturgeon and Josh Lockhart.
