I recently was provided with an eBook review copy of PHP and MongoDB Web Development from Packt Publishing, by Rubayeet Islam. Being interested in MongoDB, though a bit out of date with my PHP development, I read through the book fairly quickly.

As the title indicates, the author focuses on using MongoDB to provide the storage back-end for PHP web applications. After a short introduction to the basic concepts behind MongoDB, we get a walk-through of installing MongoDB and getting PHP to talk with it, before starting in on building a blog. It's a safe example, since a blog is a reasonable candidate for a document store like MongoDB. It also provides a way to address one of the big design questions when using MongoDB, which is when to use embedded documents and when to store references. To my mind the question is glossed over a bit too quickly, but it is discussed.

Additional projects like session management and geolocation get a bit off-track, as a lot of time is spent describing the concepts rather than MongoDB, but the meatier sections that get into topics like Map-Reduce (creating a tag cloud) and web analytics are certainly worthwhile. I did feel that the chapter reviewing two MongoDB management tools could have been skipped, since the information will likely be out of date within a couple of months.

Overall, this is a reasonable beginner's guide, as its subtitle indicates. There's a great deal of PHP code filling its pages, which will give you a starting point if you need a boost to get going. Reading through it will give you the basics about MongoDB, and a bit more -- hints on indexing, optimizing, and Map-Reduce will keep you running.

I found this book to be very informative for someone who is interested in MongoDB and wants to learn the type of database architecture MongoDB supports. This book has a web-centric view where it shows step-by-step examples that anyone can follow. Every chapter has a review of what is covered in the chapter, and plenty of examples to illustrate the author's points.

My take on this subject is from the Database Administrator point of view, and here I found the book to be a little light on substance, but this book is clearly not marketed to that segment but to developers. Some of the advanced topics covered in this book are MapReduce, GridFS and Geospatial location and on these topics this book excels.

This book would be a fine addition to any bookshelf and will have a special place in mine. It clearly shows the power of MongoDB and PHP in a Web 2.0 environment and would be a great reference to anyone in Web development.

This was a great book for those looking to get their feet wet with MongoDB. PHP And MongoDB covered many more topics than many of the MongoDB books I have read recently and while I am not a PHP developer gave me a few more ways to leverage MongoDB in my day to day work.

I especially enjoyed the chapters on Geospatial functionality and the GridFS system. Both of these topics we handled throughly and are typically glossed over in other books.

The one place I felt this book was light was the operations and administration side of things. Nowadays, many developers are handling operations as well and I feel that those topics could be explored further in books like this.

All in all, I would recommend anyone in web development looking for somewhere to start with MongoDB pick up this book and give it a read.

On the surface this seemed like a good way to learn how to use php to program apps against mongodb. It has some good information but I am spending hours trying to fix the author's php errors...
beware of that.
