Understanding the Zend Framework,
This review is from: PHP/Architect's Guide to Programming with Zend Framework (Paperback)
I am relatively new to the Zend Framework, but have been working in PHP for around 4 years now.
The book is very good for unexperienced Zend Framework developers or people that want to learn it.
Don't let me confuse you, no way you'll be able to understand some of the features discussed in this book if you do not have at least some basic experience with PHP!
The book is like a short tutorial explaining the author's view and preffered best practices. I agree with other reviewers that the Web Services chapters are maybe a little too well represented and maybe other things could have been written in the book like more in-depth Exceptions, the Zend Registry, the ACL, Zend Config and many more.
Also I don't agree with the authors opinion that you should stay clear of modules.
Overall it's a good read for 2-3 days and if you're starting out in the Zend Framework you can get this book.
Do not expect that you'll be able to use this book as a reference guide.
For that try the Zend Framework manual at [...] and I'd also get this book: Zend Framework in Action.
Always have fun !
