As is mentioned in this new post to the SitePoint blogs, a new book has been released (by SitePoint press, naturally) about "writing cutting-edge PHP code" by a few well known authors in the PHP community - Lorna Mitchell, Davey Shafik and Matthew Turland.
Savvy PHP web developers can now keep ahead of the game and ensure that their PHP code is safe, secure, and well-structured for the future with the latest release from SitePoint: "PHP Master: Write Cutting-edge Code"
by Lorna Mitchell, Davey Shafik, and Matthew Turland.
The book covers a wide range of topics (somewhat replacing SitePoint's usual "anthology" type of book) including:
- An introduction to OOP
- Working with databases
- Creating and working with APIs
- Design patterns
- Automated testing
As part of a special offer, you can pick up your print+ebook bundle for the price of just the book, about $40 USD. If you'd like a sample before purchasing, they've posted three sample chapters.
