We are very pleased to announce that the first Yii book is published today! The book is titled Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5. Thanks to Jeffrey Winesett for his hard work in turning this into reality. We believe this book will help people to master Yii more quickly and systematically.

The main content of this book include:

  • A step-by-step guide to creating a modern, sophisticated web application using an incremental and iterative approach to software development
  • Build a real-world, user-based, database-driven project task management application using the Yii development framework
  • Take a test-driven design (TDD) approach to software development utilizing the Yii testing framework
  • Write less code by using Yii's application generation and scaffolding tools
  • Enhance your application by adding Web feeds, adapting it to multiple languages, and by utilizing themes to provide beautiful skins and design flexibility

If you have any questions regarding this book, please post in this forum.

Not only is this a highly recommended read for beginners and intermediate users to Yii but a few community members have contributed to it's quality as being reviewers to the book.

I was unaware that there were others from the community at first but am thankful for their contributions as well as they definitely know Yii far better than myself :)

Figure I'll give a shout out to the other two who contributed to the book :)

Thanks Jonah (Jonah Turnquist) and imehesz (Imre Mehesz), I know of the hard work you put into to making the book accurate and authentic for readers and I know many new beginners to Yii will come to appreciate your devotion to the project :)

I also hope you enjoyed the experience as much as I did :)

At pages 159, 160 etc. it talks about "encryption" "md5 encryption" and so on, but that's hashing not encryption.
