The title says it all: if you ever wonder what it is like to work into a team, this book is for you !
Samisa Abeysinghe shares here all of his experience as project leader and director of engineering in software projects.
He starts from scratch so that the reader can understand how to successfully realize a PHP project.

From how to split a complex project to the ways to deliver a quality product, we learn most of the common mistakes to avoid and the tips to improve the team efficiency as well as the quality of the delivering.
You don't have a process? No worry, PHP team development tells you how to go from nothing to a well defined process.
Different process frameworks are offered so that the reader can be aware to several of them.

Although sometimes too basic because it seems so logical when Samisa Abeysinghe writes it, it allows the readers to be able to grasp the different notions to make a project successful.
What was missing however were concrete examples, the book give us patterns, processes but one or two business cases would have been great.

To conclude, if you are a contractor/freelance and never worked into a team, you will learn all what is needed in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consise, short and precise 13 Feb 2010
By Krzysztof Satola - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
PHP Team Development covers technical topics like designing to divide complexity, conquering complex problems, choosing the right process, improving and monitoring the process and helps in keeping things as simple as they could be. There are also non technical topics covered like ensuring effective collaboration and keeping the process and product quality.

For me the most important aspects of team work in software projects covered in the book are dealing with the complexity of software, dividing project problems among team members and solving them. The book also explains the relationship between the process and the product and helps to move from no process to having a process. It also explains why a process is so important in delivering a successful outcome.

This book helps to understand better the value of process and project quality when working with a team. The author shows nicely what matters in endeavors to succeed.

There is one thing which is missing there. Even there are some collaboration applications mentioned in the book I would like to learn more about most valued applications from the author's experience. That would help me to save time on exploring many available (sometimes not worthy spending time) solutions and be focused on valuable ones.

This book is about PHP team development but I think many problems discussed by the author apply to projects based on other technologies or languages. This book is consise, short and precise. It is ideal for busy professionals dealing with software projects on both technical and non technical levels. The book is also suitable for beginners who want to learn what is takes to work with a team and succeed. And finally, this book is of great value for every team or project manager wanting to know how to establish a straight path to success for her development team.

This book provide a wealth of practical knowledge. I definitely recommend it.
