This book consists of ten chapters of which I would describe none as `filler' chapters. Each covers fundamental web development topics in detail with little in the text in the way of obvious.
It opens with a Getting Started Chapter that comprehensively introduces the reader to the CodeIgniter framework with download and install instructions, MVC architecture overview, coding conventions and CodeIgniter specific files: helpers, plugins and libraries.
I found it interesting that the first core CodeIgniter class mentioned is the Benchmarking Class. This sets a precedent to the reader to consider monitoring their application execution time and memory consumption as they develop. Application speed and efficiency is usually something left for latter chapters involving heavy code refactoring to ensure your app is performant. I find it refreshing that benchmarking and unit testing is shown to the reader at the beginning.
Other core classes covered include the Input and Security Class (with XSS filtering), Email Class, File Upload Class, Image Manipulation Library, Pagination Class and the Session Class. All relevant classes in most applications.
Form Validation, Database Interaction, Application Security and User Authentication are heavily described in this book with the latter also covering Twitter oAuth and Facebook Connect. Two very important connections for any web application with detailed steps on each, from registration with these companies through to production coding examples. A real one stop guide.Read more ›
