3.0 out of 5 stars Uses Pusher a paid service 24 May 2014
By UnshackledMind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When buying this book I was not aware that Pusher is a paid service, especially because Pusher is not even in the main title and not everyone has to know what Pusher is. So before buying this book please check what Pusher is. Because of the above, server side aspects of real-time development rely on Pusher, which has a free sandbox, so I suppose you can practise real-time development with PHP, jQuery and WebSocket and later on switch to some other solution of your choice. To sum up: in this book, the authors concentrate on the client side of web application development, and use a commercial service called Pusher and its API for server side communication.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good on many levels 18 May 2013
By tv - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am about two-thirds through this book and am really enjoying it. The main reason I purchased this book was to get a walk through of a project built with the Pusher library. I haven't even gotten to the point in the book where Pusher is introduced and I already feel the book has been worth the price I paid. What I have enjoyed most about it so far is the step by step walk through of building a Object Oriented PHP MVC framework from the ground up. I also like how the authors are very thorough and touch upon all aspects of building the application - frontend and backend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, this book provided little insight into real-time application development 18 Oct. 2014
By Creatively.Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sadly, this book provided little insight into real-time application development

I purchased this book based on its Title and it's author's relationship with Pusher.com. My expectation was that I was in for an informative, maybe even challenging read on a good topic. What I found was a very elementary book on the basics of web development with a few calls to Pusher APIs sprinkled in for good measure.

I gave this book two stars because most of the book was about such basic web development / design / business concepts.

I didn't give it one star because, well, I didn't want to be that rude. And I can imagine that for some readers, this is an excellent introduction to web development. If the title were good basic web development, it would certainly warrant 4 stars.

Deeply disappointed
2.0 out of 5 stars Unless you want to use Pusher, this book is of little value. 11 Dec. 2015
By Joel Foust - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Unless you are interested in using Pusher SaaS to handle WebSockets this book is useless. I can not use a 3rd party for my project so this was a waste of my time.
