Product Description

Product Description

This book was written by a web developer for web developers. It is written in a fashion where it will be useful for beginning web developers and also help advanced web developers learn more.

To ensure you are not completely lost, knowledge of PHP, Javascript, HTML, and CSS are required. A basic understanding of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) is useful, but not 100 percent required.

Whether you are an advanced web developer or a beginner looking to learn CakePHP, this book promises to help you build simple and complex web sites, quickly and easily.

The goal of this book is to provide a wide variety of useful functionality that is required by most websites today. In the final chapter, we will take all that we’ve learned and create one final large project.

During this process, I will instill my knowledge in taking a project from start to finish including creating a scope of work to ensure we have accomplished our target goals.

By the end of this book, you should be able to build fully functional websites using CakePHP. Hopefully, you should also be able to cut your development time at least in half, if not more!

1.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressive 18 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was unimpressed with this book. It continually veers from subject to subject, not covering any of them in depth, with some code errors. Is it too much to ask that software development books have working code examples, instead of making readers fix the errors? As mentioned by the other review, the book is not well formatted on the kindle either. Overall, I'd say avoid this book if you want to learn CakePHP in depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers the highpoints 4 April 2011
By Brad Moore - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for the kindle. I would not say that it is formatted with the Kindle in mind, but it is readable. Screenshots are too small to see.

The material covered is really the basic highlights for CakePHP. I have several books, and this author does not dive very deep into the code or the reasons why he is doing certain things. The author does conform to the standards, which are important for CakePHP and explains these well. The author assumes the reader has a firm understanding of PHP and OOP.

In spite of the shortcomings, I would have to say this is a nice quick reference to have handy on your Kindle. If you want to know more about the nuts and bolts of CakePHP and have more time to read a longer book, check out the book from PackIT.

I gave the book four stars. It is a quick read, does not cost much and the Author (who is clearly experienced in the technology) gives several important insights into programming with CakePHP that I have not read in other texts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slim publication but with all fundamentals 5 Dec 2012
By Matteo Piccoli - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been able to read about just half of the book, though it's made of few pages (especially if compared to many other technical manuals), but it's very good written and mostly is absolutely easy to understand.

I realized my first complex CakePHP MVC app in a few days.

Absolutely reccomended, especially for the very low price.
1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible E-Book formatting 28 Jun 2013

Though the examples would be helpful, the code for them are formatted so badly it is barely legible. Find your tutorials elsewhere.
1.0 out of 5 stars A total waste of time and money... 8 Feb 2013
By S. Alouri - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book about a month ago and I have to say I am so disappointed how such forums-like writing can be called a book!
I had to stop at the fifth chapter because the code is missing a lot of parts(e.g. login() action, and others). You might think that a "little" google search will make it easy, guess what? It doesn't!
you know why? its because the code in this book is deprecated and too outdated that finding something that works with the version of cakephp is very difficult.
The auther itself, later on, mentions parts of code that was never created before in the book nor was refereed to you to do it yourself (e.g. index() action in UsersController)

People say its not bad for the cheap price, well...its cheap quality and content too! I would rather spend more time on the online documentation or on youtube much time/money saver than wasting my time on this book
