php|architect’s Guide to Enterprise PHP Development is out

June 18th, 2008 by Ivo

I'm happy to announce that as of today, my book entitled 'php|architect's Guide to Enterprise PHP Development' is available.

The book covers the entire development life cycle of PHP projects, and can be ordered through the php|architect website. php|architect has the following description:

"Whether you are running a large scale web app in a PHP-based environment, or if you are considering switching your site to PHP, our new book, php|architect's Enterprise PHP Development will surely be a valuable resource for you and your development team. This book is the only one of its kind and is unparalleled in terms of content and practical usefulness."

I leave that last sentence up to the judgement of the reader, but it's true that it's one of the few books that's not about PHP code, but about the entire development life cycle.

I owe a lot of thanks to Elizabeth Naramore and Marco Tabini of php|architect, for getting this book out.

If you order the book, also check out its companion website. I will collect feedback on that site, and will regularly post errata or other updates.

    Greetings Ivo. I started to read your book and it is great !
    Just like the style of writing about all major problems when big project is developed.

    Good Job again…
