CouchDB and PHP Web Development Beginner’s Guide from Packt Publishing has been released. I was a technical reviewer for the book. The book has been released more than a month ago but I was not able to announce it here. The reason: I moved to New Zealand.
I did not have a lot of experience with CouchDB – so reviewing the book gave me a chance to know it better. The book is targeted for beginners which is quite good because it guides you through the installation process, basic usage, and what CouchDB is all about. It makes sure that you absorb the good stuff before moving on to the more advanced features in CouchDB. I really appreciated this.
Another bonus is that you get to “write” and conceptualize your own basic PHP Framework therefore the code is organized and very easy to work with.
Things I liked about the book:
- teaches you the basic stuff
- makes you use Git
- you get to write your own very PHP framework – if you are a new, then moving to other MVC Frameworks will be easy
- has chapters about deploying your application – security, replication, etc.
You can grab the book right here.
