4.0 out of 5 stars Newbie review of Zend Framework A Beginners Guide, April 10, 2011
This review is from: Zend Framework, A Beginner's Guide (Paperback)
This is the first review of any book that I've ever bought. I'm a part time Hons Degree student and I have to develop a web application based on an existing desktop application as my final project.

I have purchased many books over the course of my degree and before it, some are on par with this book some are so poor I've either gotten refunds or they are used to prop up my monitor. I felt that I had to write this review because without this book I would be sunk. I have one php and one Ruby module under my belt from college so I guess that the book is not really aimed at me, as it says in the book it is intended for those with a firm knowledge of PHP. However I have found that the content is so easily explained that I have had no real issues with developing the base of my app.

I would have liked to see more content given to Ajax such as searching with Ajax, a section explaining Zend_Session_Namespace and how to handle updates etc of models with composite primary keys, hence only the four stars. However to be fair this is more due to the fact that the documentation on the Zend Site is so poor and the majority of examples I found online are outdated and don't work with the latest version of the framework.
I have also found that the author to be very helpful and approachable. He answered the questions I had about the content of the book and provided some helpful links. This is a major first as I've contacted the authors from other books (mainly those propping up my monitor now) and am still waiting for a reply. Thank you Vikram.
