Accelerate web application development using Packt's new Yii PHP framework book

September 2010 | PHP, Web Development

Packt is pleased to announce Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5, a new book that helps programmers develop real-world applications using the incremental and iterative approach to software development. Written Jeffrey Winesett, this book covers each aspect of the software development lifecycle by helping users to build a project task management application through production deployment.

Yii is a high-performance, component-based PHP framework used to develop large-scale Web applications. Written in strict OOP, Yii includes MVC, DAO/ActiveRecord, I18N/L10N, caching, jQuery-based AJAX support, authentication and role-based access control, scaffolding, input validation, widgets, events, theming, Web services, and so on. It is easy to use and is extremely flexible and extensible.

Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5 helps developers understand the built-in authentication model within Yii, thereby assisting in application login and logout functionality. Readers will learn to enhance applications by adding Web feeds, adapt them to multiple languages, and also utilize themes for providing beautiful skins and design flexibility. Additionally, integrating other frameworks and libraries into a Yii application in order to extend its feature set is thoroughly covered in this book.

This step-by-step guide is broken down into iterations and starts off by explaining how to connect a tested application to the database. It then moves ahead with Yii's object-relational-mapping (ORM) layer, Active Record Yii's, building CRUD functionality with Yii's auto-generation tools. Towards the end of the book, developers will learn to add user comment functionality and RSS feeds, and focus on production deployment, optimizing performance as well as the security of the application.

PHP programmers with knowledge of object oriented programming who want to develop modern web applications will find this book a beneficial and interesting read. This book is out now and available with Packt. For more information, please visit: - www.packtpub.com/yii-1-1-and-php5-for-agile-web-application-development/book
