First Yii book published

Aug 11, 2010

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
