Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Each new version of PHP proves to be easily accessible and requires only a small learning curve. In no time at all, you can put together a simple yet dynamic Web site. This book goes beyond just showing you how to create a quick and uncomplicated site; it helps you deliver better quality software in a shorter amount of time using PHP6.

To put your working knowledge of PHP to use, the authors dive right in with the recent launch of version 6, while highlighting the differences between PHP6 and earlier versions. You'll begin with the fundamentals of professional development and a review of basic object oriented programming (OOP) concepts, before moving on to more advanced development techniques. You'll eventually put all that you've learned into practice and build an application from the ground up using a model-view controller (MVC) framework. Ultimately, you'll discover how to unleash the power of PHP6 and push it to its limits.

What you will learn from this book

  • How to use the tools that are available with PHP6, such as namespaces, collections, iterators, and more
  • The roles of databases in enterprise applications development

  • How to approach common software development challenges by using various PHP6 techniques

  • The importance of quality assurance (QA) and testing, and how to approach it on projects of varying scales

  • How to construct high traffic or high availability using PHP6 sites that resemble sites like Flickr® and Facebook

  • How to use PHP-driven content management systems and content management frameworks

This book is what happens when greedy publishers jump the gun on technology. PHP 6 was largely rolled into PHP 5.3 for reasons you can research online. The point is this book is not about PHP 6. I hope now and in the future when PHP 6 comes out people will not be confused into wasting money on this book.

The book is NOT even close to being a good book. Put simply, it's full of errors that will leave you scratching your head, not knowing what to
do and more importantly how to do it. It's just a huge, total waste of your time, period.
What's more, the three of them just get lost in what's their wish to sound professional and skilled but that unfortunately brings them to
feed you usless code containing as I said a host of stupid mistakes.
How would you regard a programmer using such variable names ? :
$_strConstraintFailureDefaultRedirectTargetURL -
$_blIsRedirectFollowingConstraintFailure -
$objThisFailingConstraintObject = $objThisConstraintFailure->GetFailedConstraintObject();
...names that he can't recall himself a few lines after ( $_blIsRedirectFollowingConstraintFailure becomes $_blIsRedirectOnConstraintFailure ).
It would take ages to explain the whys of the uslesness of this book and to list all the errors contained in it.

Simply put, this book is non-sense as PHP 6 is not even out yet. There is no more to talk about and no reason to buy it. End of discussion.

This book is NOT about PHP6 as itself.

There is nothing about coming features, how they are going to be, etc.

This books is more about best practices in project, designs and coding styles.

This was disapointing, but still I got some interesting ideas from this book.
