Friday, October 23, 2009 | News | PHP/MySQL

Packt is pleased to announce Symfony 1.3 Web Application Development, a new book that helps users design, develop, and deploy feature-rich, high-performance PHP web applications using the Symfony framework. Written by Tim Bowler and Wojciech Bancer, this book is an example driven tutorial that takes readers through the process of building MVC based web applications. It will allow them to create a real-life application from design to deployment and explore all the major aspects of the Symfony framework.

Symfony, is a free web application framework written in PHP which follows the model-view-controller (MVC) paradigm. It has a flexible architecture that helps build modern web applications and web services easily and rapidly. The MVC components separate the logic from the user interface and therefore make developing, changing, and testing applications much faster.

Symfony 1.3 Web Application Development will make it easy for developers to get started and produce a powerful and professional looking website utilizing the many features of Symfony. It is aimed at building robust applications in an enterprise context, and intends to give developers full control over the configuration. It covers all major Symfony framework features as well as throwing some light on the best practices for rapid application development.

With this book, users will learn to shorten the development time of their complex applications and maintain them with ease. It will help them create several useful plug-ins and add them to their applications. Users can even choose their preferred language for display by introducing internationalization and localization to their applications and can integrate a component from another framework into it.

With lots of examples and easy to follow instructions, this book is ideal for PHP web developers who want to get started with Symfony 1.3. The book is out now and available at Packt. To read more about it, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/symfony-1-3-web-application-development/book
